The setting is a U.S.O. club in Brooklyn in 1942, where soldiers and sailors can take a turn on the dance floor with club hostesses, thanks to the new jukebox.  But the war isn’t far away.  Ships leaving the nearby Navy yard are being sunk by enemy U-boats.  Could there be spies hiding out at the club?  It’s up to Private Joe Kilroy (whose habit of leaving a funny cartoon wherever he goes is drawing a lot of attention) to protect the location of the next Allied convey.  The suspense keeps building until a wild radio broadcast brings down the house.  This sensational show has it all — humor, suspense, nostalgia, and terrific music sure to keep your toes tapping and hands clapping.
