Synopsis

fire ext sign.jpg

It was November 28, 1942, almost a year since the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Americans were busy with the war effort and praying for their boys “over there.” On this particular night, Boston was alive with excitement as Boston College battled Holy Cross College on the football field. Cocoanut Grove, the popular, swank Boston nightclub was hopping with nearly one-thousand diners: students fresh from the game, servicemen on a weekend pass, newlyweds celebrating the beginning of their new lives, and even a Hollywood cowboy making the rounds to promote his upcoming film. In the midst of such gaiety, who could have predicted that a split-second mistake could spark an inferno that would claim 492 lives, changing fire code safety forever!

This will be the last opportunity to see this original show before the cast leaves for our New York Debut at Theatre 80 beginning November 21st.
