Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. **giveaway of TWO pairs of tickets to the opening night performance, Tuesday, January 10 (great date night show!), enter to win by posting on the Facebook page with a great idea for a date night.**
