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”.
