The 1940s were the golden age of the American Songbook. It would seem that WWII and the music from the era go hand-in-hand. World War II was the centerpiece of the decade and, as one music critic wrote, “In a very real sense, American popular music was the popular music of World War II”.

The war was an emotional period, and the songs tapped a reservoir of emotions: hope, longing, loneliness and love. Love Letters From the Front takes us back in time to the war years of 1940-1945 when American GI’s were sending off their letters to their spouses and loved ones and receiving them in return. This production showcases some of those letters along with music from the era in support of those letters.
As the anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1944) approaches, it’s particularly appropriate that we take time to honor those brave men and women who fought valiantly for our country during that tumultuous time.Buy Tickets
