Only the Brave, a Musical that Focuses on Soldiers Before D-Day

I haven’t had a chance to view this as I am on a low bandwidth connection at present. I saw a reference (Only The Brave, new British musical to be streamed for free) to the British musical “Only the Brave” a couple of weeks ago. The play is the story of a group of British soldiers in the days before the June 6th D-Day landings.

The play focuses on a small company training to take Pegasus Bridge. The primary characters are Captain John Howard, Lieutenant Denholm Brotheridge, and their wives. A production of the play at the Millenium Centre, Cardiff, Wales was recorded in 2016 by Advision TV.

I thought that this was something a little different to share. The 2:18:09, 4.7Gb (at 1080p)  video might give you something different to watch as we are ‘sheltering-in-place’ from COVID-19.
