With Gratitude

Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate the extraordinary women who became heroes in WWII at our live performance! We were mesmerized by the stories of Hedy Lamarr, Josephine Baker, Andree Peel and Noor Inayat Khan that came to life through dance, art and music.  

We also unveiled of two new paintings by Vicki Chelf of the “Bond Bombshell” Dorothy Lamour that feature original memorabilia from Dorothy Lamour’s estate.
Special thanks to Art Avenue Gallery and everyone who helped bring the celebration to life!

JOIN OUR JOURNEY 

Be a part our mission to produce a stage performance that tells the passionate stories of the women who fought and won over fascism during WWII. From celebrities to the "woman on the street" they rose up, some in high profile circumstance and others in the clandestine service to their country and France.

These women's stories mark immeasurable courage in the face of outstanding odds. They met with discrimination on all fronts, yet they dug in and became the forgotten patriots of the World's Greatest Generation. We tell those stories with pride and get swept up in the emotional carriage that showcases their heroic bravery.

Seven emotional, passionate stories are featured in unique multimedia event, featuring Images from WWII, original music, original art (that motivated this entire visual journey) that joins it all together - to make for an evening of provocative, compelling, inspiring and enlightening performance art.

 

It is our mission as we take this artistic journey together - to tie the past with the present and future. To create a world of positivity, hope and encouragement everywhere for the Women of the World (WOW) and the people of the world, to create a fair, equitable and open-minded society. To Inspire and empower each other through kindness and support of our own personal infrastructure and the planet at large. A unique empowered movement of kindness, goodwill and support for everyone. WOW!
