This is the Army: 75th Anniversary Concert

  • 54 Below 254 West 54th Street New York, NY, 10019 United States (map)

On July 4, 1942, Irving Berlin’s all-soldier musical This is the Army opened on Broadway before touring the US, making an Oscar-winning Hollywood film, playing the London Palladium, and visiting the front lines of World War II.

This Veterans Day, join Feinstein’s/54 Below, and an all-star Broadway cast, as we remember how this troupe of Broadway soldiers became the first racially integrated US Army unit, had openly gay soldiers who risked military prison, and avoided brushes with death as they brought their vaudeville show to the war’s most dangerous combat zones.

Featuring songs like “This is the Army, Mr. Jones,” “Ladies of the Chorus,” “Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning,” and “God Bless America.”

Directed and Produced by Jason Ferguson.
