Fiona Shaw in Testament of Mary (Paul Kolnik)This week in Studio 360, mothers in hard times. Fiona Shaw plays a Mary furious over the death of Jesus in The Testament of Mary on Broadway, while our American Icons series explores “Migrant Mother,” Dorothea Lange’s classic Depression portrait — both the desperate subject and the famous photographer came to rue the day it was shot. Plus, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist finds the black humor in the tyrannical regime of North Korea. And singer Jessie Ware, a rising star from the UK (and a friend of Adele’s), explains why South London is the new Brooklyn.
