"Allotment Annie" (Infusion Theatre): War Bride-zillas

"Allotment Annie" (Infusion Theatre):  War Bride-zillas

Infusion Theatre presents the world premiere of Allotment Annie.  It’s 1944.  Americans are fighting off the Germans overseas.  Meanwhile, war crimes are being committed right here on the home front.  A friendly Poughkeepsie, New York tavern welcomes the military.  Fran and Virginia will dance, screw and marry any service guy that walks in the door.   The gals share a mutual sentiment that these men won’t be coming home.  So, they decide to support them by whatever scheme they can.  Is it for patriotism, love or money? Allotment Annie doles out the seedy side of war from the home court advantage.
