Bein' Greene (with an "E") the Musical Large Print: Sing Along With Patriots: Nathanael Greene, Caty Greene, George Washington...

James Dumas

FRESH PERSPECTIVE ON THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION First it's a musical that highlights the emotions of the worst break up the world has ever seen (obviously, this is not about you and your dramatic high school years). It is about the American Colonies breaking up with King George's British Empire. The Declaration of Independence is the longest "dear john letter" ever written. Needless to say, the King does not take the break up and the 27 reasons, well. Secondly, a lot happens between Valley Forge and the Surrender at Yorktown that is not commonly known. From an army that barely survives to beating the best army in the world. Most of the dramatic events occurred in the Southern Continental Army under the leadership of Major General Nathanael Greene. Nathanael Greene was an unlikely soldier never mind that he becomes George Washington favorite General. He was brought up by a Quaker Preacher who was against fighting; has a limp that embarrasses the Rhode Island Kentish Guards; has asthma; was self-taught; and was from the smallest state, Rhode Island. He persevered through tough times that included personnel illness, shortages, disease, and bad weather. He took command of the Southern Army after two devastating defeats. He rebuilt the army and used unorthodox strategies to turn defeats into victories. He removed Cornwallis' Army from the Carolina's fleeing to Yorktown with the remaining 50%. Cornwallis' surrender leads to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the ideals of America. Nathanael's wife, Caty, played an integral part of the Revolution. Later on she becomes a business partner to Eli Whitney making her the "mother" of the American Industrial Revolution. The story is set to some of the greatest songs (adapted) of our time from start to finish. The classics include: Sweet Caroline; Livin' On A Prayer; We Are The Champions; Thriller; Papa Don't Preach; Running On Empty; Who Are You?; Hungry Like The Wolf; Fernando and many more.
