Patricia Durante sings the iconic songs of WWII such as “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” and “The White Cliffs of Dover” in “We’ll Meet Again.” East Lynne Theater Company is proud to present this tour-de-force performance on Sunday, Aug. 12 at 8 p.m. in The Henry Sawyer Room at The Chalfonte Hotel, 301 Howard St., Cape May.
Throughout the show, Durante engages with the audience and puts the songs in their historical context. Song lyrics are provided for “sing-alongs,” and she may even need audience members to help her to complete the Andrews Sisters Trio. Tickets are $27 and ages 12 and under are free.
Meet Durante and her accompanist after the show at a reception at The Chalfonte.
She graduated from the American Music and Dramatic Academy, and also studied at HB Studios in NYC and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. Durante is the 2015 Winner of “NJ Best Actress in a Musical” for her portrayal of Patsy Cline in the Women’s Theater Company’s (Parsippany, N.J.) production of “Always Patsy Cline.” She’ll be singing some of Cline’s songs at ELTC’s annual fundraiser on Nov. 5.
Meanwhile, on ELTC’s mainstage at The First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, 500 Hughes St., “Arsenic and Old Lace” is playing through Sept. 1. It was first produced on Broadway in 1941, a few months before Pearl Harbor.
