About the USO Liberty Bells
The only official chartered USO show troupe, the USO Liberty Bells travel throughout the world performing for service men and women, their families, veterans and audiences that actively support the troops here and abroad.
The USO Liberty Bells are part of this American tradition that began with the muddy camp shows of the South Pacific 71 years ago.
The 21-member troupe is comprised of Broadway and off-Broadway professionals who are chosen each year after an extensive audition process in Manhattan. This year's performers hail from Broadway shows such as "Spiderman: Turn off the Dark," "Les Miserables," "Hairspray," "The Color Purple" and "Cirque du Soleil." Full biographies of each performer can be found here at the USO of Metropolitan New York website.
The USO Liberty Bells make more than 200 appearances throughout the year at deployment and homecoming ceremonies, veteran's hospitals, aboard ships and at military installations, as well as at many corporate and fundraising events.
