Transparent: Musicale Finale

Working as a fitting end to season four of Jill Soloway's Emmy award-winning show, the Musicale Finale is a feature-length musical that deals with the loss of lead character Maura (as previously played by Jeffrey Tambor). Both melancholy and joyous in equal measure, with some memorable songs along the way.
