The American singer, pianist, songwriter, copywriter and producer Constance Hauman is recognized in the world of indie rock as well as classical music. Hauman, one of Leonard Bernstein's favorite interpreters, has sung over 2,000 opera performances and countless concerts at the following venues: Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Welsh National Opera, English National Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Opera National de Paris, Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, London Symphony and the London Philharmonia. She wrote, played and directed the one-man show 'Exiles in Paradise,' which caused a sensation at 92nd Street Y in New York, Schönberg Hall in Los Angeles, and the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The Wall Street Journal wrote about the artist: 'Constance Hauman's bright, versatile coloratura soprano made headlines throughout the European music scene as the sex goddess in Alban Berg's Lulu. Her sparkling soprano can be heard in a live recording at Chandos, but now her performance song 'Exiles in Paradise', which has been crafted with a meticulousness that deserves a doctoral degree, is performed with equally divine verve by her. Ms. Hauman interprets Friedrich Hollander's melody of 'Falling in Love Again' with such a sensual brilliance and phrasing that is in no way inferior to Marlene. '

Recovering showgirl Miss Hope Springs was once the toast of Las Vegas. Now she's down on her luck and highly medicated.

You'll hear hilarious stories about her Ritz to the pits life in LA, Paris and...Dungeness.

Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich were two of the greatest names in international show business during much of the 20th century. At a time when popular culture was still defined by a small handful of artists, these were two of the biggest. Piaf enchanted the world with her singing, her moving life story, and unostentatious appearance; while Dietrich's beauty, elegance, and bewitching stare helped to define the meaning of a Hollywood star. They were both divas without compromise, whose lives were as theatrical as their performances. Yet, these two women, who couldn't be more dissimilar and approached life and art in very different ways, became fast friends and eventually lovers.
