Sarah Boone

“unearths forgotten nightclub gems”
– Cabaret Scenes

“Bright and lively…a musical standout!” 
– The Florida Times-Union

As rhythms of Big Bands swelled,
and tears from World War II fell,
there lived a young woman, unlike any other,
as I unlocked her diary and discovered my mother.

Between the pages of a faded handwritten journal, Sarah Boone learned of the joys, heartbreaks, passions and the everyday perseverance of someone she knew … but long before she knew her. Her Mom!

Now travel back with Sarah in an all-new, memory-filled musical show that hails and regales the greatest generation … as told through the diary entries, letters and moments of Sarah’s favorite greatest-generation heroine. In this touching evening of song and inspiring word, this daughter’s love letter to her remarkable mother captures the era when ordinary people achieved the extraordinary … believed in the right thing to do … and exchanged “goodbyes” with “We’ll Meet Again” …

2-drink minimum.

Running time: 60 to 75 minutes.
