East Lynne Theater Company presents
"We'll Meet Again: Songs of World War II"

originally published: 08/06/2018

East Lynne Theater Company presents "We'll Meet Again: Songs of World War II"(CAPE MAY, NJ) -- East Lynne Theater Company, with the sponsorship of The Chalfonte Hotel, presents "We'll Meet Again: The Songs of World War II," as the second of a two-part series, Musical Soirées at the Hotels. This musical tour-de-force will be held on Sunday, August 12 at 8:00pm at The Henry Sawyer Room of The Chalfonte Hotel, featuring actress, recording artist, and cabaret performer Patricia Durante.

With piano accompaniment, Durante salutes the Greatest Generation with the hit songs that became anthems of love and hope to a war-torn world. "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree," "The White Cliffs of Dover," "This is the Army, Mr. Jones" and "We’ll Meet Again" are just some of the iconic hits of the 1940's that she performs. Throughout the 75-minute show, Durante engages with the audience, and puts the songs in their historical context. Song lyrics are provided for "sing-a-longs," and she may even need audience members to help her to complete the Andrews Sisters Trio.

Patricia Durante graduated from the American Music and Dramatic Academy, and also studied at HB Studios in NYC and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. In 2015, she was the winner of The New Jersey Footlight Award for "Best Actress in a Musical" for her portrayal of Patsy Cline in the Women's Theater Company's (Parsippany, NJ) production of "Always Patsy Cline."  She'll be singing some of Cline's songs at ELTC's annual fundraiser on November 5.

In 2016, she recorded "Just Some Favorites" a 15-track album of classic ballads.

All attending "We’ll Meet Again" are invited to stay for a post-show reception with Durante and her accompanist, to be held in The Chalfonte Hotel's King Edward Bar.
