WHO: Cinnabar Theater
WHAT: "So Nice to Come Home To: A World War II Musical" - WORLD PREMIERE
Music by Richard B. Evans, Lyrics by Kate Hancock, Book by Evans & Hancock
Suggested by two plays by J.M. Barrie
Set in New York City in 1944, it's a time of innocence, uncertainty, humor and optimism - but the stresses of war are affecting soldiers and civilians alike. This touching, sweet, funny and thought-provoking musical tells the story of a middle-aged woman’s determination to become an essential part of America’s war effort.
The musical features original songs evoking the era with every style of music from the 1940s represented including ~ a patriotic anthem, tuneful nods to New York City and Carmen Miranda, sweet ballads, waltzes and foxtrots.
