Dating back to the Civil War, Memorial Day has honored those who have died while serving in our country’s armed forces. We salute their service, and pay homage with some of our favorite musicals inspired by their stories.

An American in Paris is one of the season’s biggest hits and follows a soldier’s post-World War II adventures in Paris.

 

Miss Saigon returns with a brand new production in London’s West End. The Daily Mall said, “the greatest musical of all time just got better.” Take a peek…

 

Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy’s musical about the Civil War received a makeover (and a new title) this spring: Freedom’s Song: Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War at the Ford’s Theatre. It is part of Ford’s 150, a series of events commemorating the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination.
