Born in Paris and educated at Berklee College of Music, Wrembel wrote the theme song to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, has performed at the Academy Awards, and is generally one of the most astonishing musicians you'll ever hear.

THE SOURCE
North Adams, 8 p.m.
In July 2013, Private Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison after publishing the largest set of classified documents ever leaked to the public. The conviction provoked a maelstrom of media coverage, ranging from portraits of Manning’s personal life to new dialogues about military abuses. In producer Beth Morrison’s latest work-in-progress, Ted Hearn and director Daniel Fish dive headfirst into this digital storm with an assemblage of Twitter feeds, chat transcripts, and court testimony, wound together in an arresting music-theater production.
