Kilroy Was Here
A Musical Salute to the G.I. Joes and Jills of the 1940s
Travel back to 1942 and salute the brave men and women of World War II with this patriotic comedy. The setting is a U.S.O. Club ("The Serviceman's 'Home Away From Home'") in Brooklyn. Ships leaving the nearby Navy yard are being sunk by enemy U-boats. Allied intelligence suspects the club is unknowingly harboring Axis spies. Enter Private Joe Kilroy, a young soldier who draws a curious cartoon face everywhere he goes (and is this causing trouble!). He's the only one who knows where the next Allied convoy will converge. The enemy agents are stopping at nothing to learn his secret. The action builds to an exciting finale during a wild radio broadcast. The score includes such hits as "Don't Say No To The U.S.O.," "Slap That Jukebox," "Jitterbug Saturday Night," and "Rat-a-tat-tat That Rivet," with classic Andrews Sisters style harmony. (Also available as a one-act musical)
