There's something special about hearing the natural sound of human voices in the theater. They become a symphony of verbosity akin to a chamber ensemble performing in a first rate concert hall. There are nuances and colors that are to be detected without the aid of amplification. Such is the case with the Roundabout Theatre Company's production of THE PHILANTHROPIST which is currently on stage at the American Airlines Theatre.

Never in the history of the world, before or since, has there been such cataclysmic destruction as there was in World War II. The entire face of the earth changed as millions died and entire cities were razed to rubble. World War II was the harbinger of the Holocaust and the herald of the Atomic Age. For Americans, it was a time of intense patriotism and sacrifice in the cause of freedom throughout the world. With Capt. Richard McCallion Blackburn (U.S. Army Ret.) and Jerald Berry's In The Company Of Heroes, may the world never forget. The book pulses with the complex rhythms of history seen on the battleground–a thrilling, detailed and outstanding exercise in historical documentation.

During the Vietnam war a multitude of young men were conscripted to fight in some of the bloodiest military campaigns in American history. These courageous young men were expected to fight in the harshest terrain and against men who knew the battlefield intimately. What makes it worse though is the fact that these men were expected to fight without the moral support of their own country. Such are the physical and emotional trauma that all Vietnam Veterans faced. In 'Moonscape', author Randall T. Elliott has written a truly eye-opening book that honors the brave young men who fought in Vietnam.

The Vietnam War was a long, costly armed conflict that pitted the communist regime of North Vietnam and its southern allies, known as the Viet Cong, against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. It was the longest war in American history and the most unpopular American war of the twentieth century. Even today, many still ask whether the American effort in Vietnam was a sin, a blunder, a necessary war, or a noble cause, or an idealistic, if failed, effort to protect the South Vietnamese from totalitarian government.

Jim Thompson, an Army Ranger and POW of the Viet Namese for 9 years, deserves to have his story widely known. In 2001, Tom Philpott published an oral biography of Thompson; later that year, the next undeclared war was triggered. Glory Denied, a 90 minute opera based on Philpott's book, definitely contributes to raising Thompson's profile. Urban Arias has mounted a strong production of the 2007 one-act work in English through January 19 in the Keegan Theatre's space on Church Street.

The month of December has always been an emotional time of the year, especially for our military families; a period to deeply reflect on family and country. Over the past few months in New York cabaret, a few performers have offered up musical testimony on wars, patriotism, and US military veterans. Recently, two singers fairly new to the cabaret scene--Anna Marie Sell and Kim Sutton--staged shows saluting the brave men and women who serve our country now and in the past.

Forty years ago, the last U.S. troops were withdrawn from Vietnam, ending U.S. military involvement in the Vietnam War. That nearly decade-long war divided the nation, defined a generation and changed the U.S. military's mode of operation (1). Today, many people learn about the war through the media, pop culture, and history texts.
