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”…
Cabaret artist Sarah Boone brings Mom Before Dad: A Young Woman of the Greatest Generation to the Millibo Art Theatre after sold out performances in Florida and a celebrated appearance off-Broadway at NYC’s Triad Theater earlier this year.
“A Wonderfully Enjoyable Experience”
“Bright and lively…a musical standout”
