cd An album about faith isn't something we'd ordinarily write about, but an album about faith and doubt, that's a different matter. Have Faith, by Broadway performer Mary Testa and arranger Michael Starobin, mixes genres freely (show music, Prince, Annie Lennox) and the results are salutary. They'll be performing songs from the album (Mr. Starobin on piano) at the Laurie Beechman Theater, January 4-5 and 11-12. Tickets.
