Additional Info

From the composers of Mary Poppins, Over Here! is a choo-choo ride into the past-to wartime America of the 1940s-and it brought the two surviving Andrews Sisters to Broadway and renewed acclaim. An affectionate lampoon of the brassy big band era of World War II America, the original cast in support of the fabled Andrews Sisters included John Travolta, Marilu Henner, Ann Reinking and Treat Williams. On a train full of draftees heading for Europe, the 'DePaul' sisters are looking for a third singer to transform their duo into a trio. They find her in Mitzi-a down-home girl with a secret: she's a Nazi spy with a slinky Dietrich accent and a microphone conveniently hidden in her lipstick. Seventeen rollicking Big Band numbers evoke the originals of the period while gently spoofing musical memories of the wartime era.
