The Good War: Stories from the Greatest Generation

A magnificent, Pulitzer Prize-winning oral history of the Second World War brilliantly translated to the stage, interspersing classic “pop” tunes of the early 1940’s, with astonishing first-hand accounts of the lives of both the men who fought the war, and those who stayed behind to keep the home fires burning.
