The scars of World War II still hadn't completely healed when London's Theatre Workshop began to develop its musical "Oh What a Lovely War" in the late 1950s. Perhaps that's why the troupe instead chose to explore World War I and, though the show was a hit that transferred to Broadway, it's not produced that often in the United States.
