The Daly News (musical)
The Daly News (musical)
"The Daly News sends you out singing." —New Times
Story, book and lyrics by Jonathan Gillard Daly. Music by Larry Delinger and Gregg Coffin.

Cast: 5m., 4w. The Daly News is a story about love and distance between fathers and sons. The source material for Jonathan Gillard Daly's uniquely personal story is his own grandfather Martin's World War II newsletter, The Daly News, written from 1943 to 1946 and distributed to Martin's children, who were scattered over the globe in the service of their country. The journal entries and personal letters—all preserved faithfully by Martin's children—reveal a universality of perspective on the events which formed the World War II years. The score includes songs ranging from boogie-woogie to vaudville-style patter and contemporary ballads. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.
