About Waiting Star Productions
Lauren James and Ed Miller met in 2006 and almost immediately began creating shows together. Their first was The Greatest Generation—A Musical Tribute. This joint venture was so successful that it is still playing today. The show is a moving account of the people who came of age in the Great Depression and then led us to victory in World War II. It features the music of the 30s and 40s. The first few performances were musical reviews, then wide-screen multimedia, featuring images and film clips, were added.

“Their music both reflected and help shape their spirit, often serving as a drum roll to summon everything hopeful and optimistic.”
From "The Greatest Generation—A Musical Tribute"
Over the past eight years, The Greatest Generation — A Musical Tribute has performed at concerts, conventions, retirement communities and public venues around Oregon.

SPECIAL SHOW HONORING VETERANS OF D-DAY LANDING
Marking the 63 rd Anniversary of the Normandy Invasion, Lauren and Ed conducted a widespread search to find surviving veterans of the decisive World War II battle.
Four veterans were brought by limousine to the event, their stories were told, and they were then treated to dinner at Bel Dis Restaurant.
