P.F.C. Mary Brown: A Wac Musical Revue

Description: The WAC musical revue "P.F.C. Mary Brown" was inspired by two sources: Frank Loesser's breakout hit song from the revue "About Face!," and the insignia of the Women's Army Corps, which features an image of the goddess Pallas Athene. Displaying more of a plot than the other soldier shows, this revue depicts the goddess growing bored with her life on Olympus and descending to Earth to find fulfillment as a WAC named Mary Brown. Although it is never referred to as a "soldier show" or as a "Blueprint Special," it was conceived in an identical format—a musical revue developed under the aegis of the Army Service Forces Special Services Division, tried out before an audience of military personnel and invited guests, and published in a compilation containing the script, lyrics, stage directions, complete orchestrations, dance routines, scenic and costume designs (including instructions on how to make them from waste and salvage materials), a sample program template, and general notes on how to produce the show. The only major difference between this show and the "Blueprint Specials" is that "P.F.C. Mary Brown" is written specifically for performance by members of the Women's Army Corps rather than by the male troops. A list of all the "Blueprint Specials" that were either published or in production when this show was released appears on the back cover.
