From New York to Paris, from ragtime to jazz — an ensemble of actor-musicians chronicles the story of America's first women soldiers. These intrepid heroines served as bi-lingual telephone operators on the front lines, helping turn the tide of World War I. They then returned home to fight a decades-long battle for equality and recognition, paving the way for future generations.
Songs from The Hello Girls were performed in concert on the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC in October 2019.
The Hello Girls features music and lyrics by composer and lyricist Peter Mills, book by Mills and Cara Reichel, and direction by Reichel. Music direction is by Ben Moss, and orchestrations are by Mills and Moss.
Prospect Theater Company (www.ProspectTheater.org) is an NYC-based non-profit dedicated to the development and production of new musical theater. The Hello Girls was commissioned in part through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
