Service men and women are the unsung heroes of our time, but they mostly remain faceless and nameless. We sometimes forget that they deserve some recognition for their hard work, dedication and dedication to the service of others. Broadway is no exception, and here are some shows with service men and women on Broadway, whether serving men, women or both.
Miss Saigon (1991)
This musical was inspired by the life experiences of the US Marine Corps in Vietnam and the Vietnam War. Vietnamese barmaid and her disastrous love affair with her ex-husband years later. This is the story of a young woman and her love for her boyfriend in the middle of the war.
The first round of shows was highly controversial, as was the Vietnam War, but that changed with the final round of 2017. It has been criticised for portraying the Vietnamese in a negative light because of its portrayal of the war and its impact on the people of Vietnam.
The film and musical tell the story of Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who meet in the army and later become popular as singers and dancers. The original production won three Tony Awards, with the original cast and a second place finish at the 2015 Tony Awards.
They are using their rising popularity to help the old commander General Waverly, who is struggling financially at his inn. So they decide to put on a show to raise money for him and his wife and their young son Jack.
The play is popular with audiences and has been performed in the United States and Canada for more than two decades, most recently in New York City. The White Christmas, which runs at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., from December 18 to January 1, 2017.
Musician Donny Novitski returns home to applause after his battle in World War II, in which he lost a close friend. A group of veterans gather in the lobby of the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., to take part in a radio competition on December 18, 2016.
So Lin-Manuel Miranda pays tribute to those who fought and died in the war, but not Alexander Hamilton, his wife Caroline or his family.
What is missing from the play is the fact that Alexander Hamilton commanded the entire Continental Army, effectively becoming Chief of the General Staff and Commander-in-Chief. He became a prominent commander and hero of the Revolutionary War, and a romance blossomed between him and his wife Caroline.
Shows with service men and women on duty are the ultimate tribute a hero can receive, but not all superheroes wear capes. Some usually wear military uniforms.
