In November 2020, original cast members of Prospect Theater Company’s original musical, THE HELLO GIRLS, gathered at Symphony Space in NYC (with rigorous safety protocols in place) for a one day film shoot.

There’s nothing that feeds the holiday spirit like WWI programming on C-SPAN 3 . . . As usual, all times are Central, and we can’t be responsible for schedule changes. Errors on our part are possible and highly resented.

For those wishing to see “All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914,” please check your local PBS listings. The Theatre Latte Da production from the Twin Cities is scheduled to be streamed on pbs.org beginning December 15th.
Somewhat disappointing for those of us close to Kansas City and the National World War I Museum and Memorial, local PBS stations have given us only one opportunity a piece to see this presentation, and not under the best scheduling. In Topeka it will air on December 22nd on KTWU-Enhance (11.3) at 11 p.m. CT. On Kansas City PBS-2 it will air on December 27th at 2:00 p.m. CT.
Since 1954 the U.S. has observed every November 11th as Veteran’s Day, while in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand the day remains known as Remembrance Day. Why did Americans make this change? Read Dr. Neiberg’s article by clicking here.
