Shootout at the OK Chorale

I used to run an opera company called Opera Anonymous and we called our opera chorus the OA Chorale. Made me snicker, at any rate. I love this cartoon by Dan Pizarro.

How divine is this? Ms Streep is currently filming a biopic about Florence Foster Jenkins, possibly one of the worst singers ever recorded.  It’s directed by Stephen Frears and is being shot in Liverpool as we speak.  Streep is wonderful at humanizing larger than life figures, so I’m really looking forward to this one!
