War Bonds: The Songs and Letters of World War II A living history cabaret, it is a musical journey through a war that redefined the world. Interspersed with letters from the Front and headline news of the day, the prduction is a warm reminiscence and a harrowing reminder of a time that is nor unlike the present. Actual veteran's stories create a sentimental journey back through the days when blackouts and rationing were a small sacrifice in order to obtain freedom. A time when Rosie the Riveter discovered she could take care of herself; a time when African-Americans, who were held down at home by Jim Crow, became war heroes overseas; and when a man's only wish was to be home for Christmas. WAR BONDS: Songs and Letters of World War II explores the dark side of war and the strange juxtaposition of the light hearted, popular tunes of the time.
