Show time: 8PM
Bobby Nesbitt and Carmen Rodriguez return to the living room of the Little White House in their new show which tells the history of the USO and the stars that entertained the troops. From its beginning in 1941 through Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East, the USO and the entertainers known as "soldiers in greasepaint" were always there. Bobby and Carmen will spotlight the WW 2 era and the heyday of the Hollywood Canteen and the Stage Door Canteen when stars like Bob Hope, Betty Grable, Bing Crosby, Dinah Shore and the Andrews Sisters were the headliners. They will also take a look at later years when Marilyn Monroe entertained in Korea and Martha Raye took "Hello Dolly" to Vietnam.
The shows are performed in the intimate setting of Harry and Bess. Truman's living room and bobby will be playing Harry's newly refurbished and rebuilt piano.
Seating is extremely limited and these shows are always sold out so early ticket purchases are strongly recommended.
