Production Description
From New York to Paris, from ragtime to jazz-an ensemble of actor-musicians chronicles the story of America's first women soldiers in a new musical by Prospect Theater Company.

These intrepid heroines served as bilingual telephone operators on the front lines, helping turn the tide of World War I. They then returned home to fight a decades-long battle for equality and recognition, paving the way for future generations. The Hello Girls celebrates the centennial of these groundbreaking women.
