Manhattan Island – 1937
It was such an uncertain time. The Great Depression was
ending, and news of World War II filled the New York papers.
Stories about Adolf Hitler’s Gestapo gaining power all over
Europe was front-page news. And while that war was raging on,
a different type of battle was taking place on Broadway.
Frank Waters, Maggie Wolfe, and countless other hopefuls stood
in long lines in the pursuit of a dream — that just one casting director
would give them their big break.
Frank had been to hundreds of auditions during the last two years,
but without an agent, he has met very little success. There were lean times
when Frank braved the elements and waited for hours, never even getting a chance
to sing. But, today was different. After much trying, he finally got to perform
with Maggie Wolfe, and finally, someone said “Yes!”
With that one yes, the song-and-dance team of Wolfe and Waters was born.
The pair landed themselves an agent, and the duo would sing and dance on
Broadway, and also for the U.S. troops during World War II, as members of C-100,
a highly decorated USO unit. From there, Wolfe and Waters would sing to sold-out
audiences worldwide They even found themselves dazzling crowds in showrooms
that popped up in a little resort town in the desert known as Las Vegas.
From humble beginnings waiting in audition lines on Broadway to the bright
lights of the Las Vegas Strip, Wolfe and Waters not only found success…
they found each other. Even at the beginning of their career,
everyone could tell that they would be stars and that they would share
A LIFETIME OF LOVE.
