In The Mood
November 2 - November 4, 2012
Swing music inspired America with a vision for the future filled with hope, promise and prosperity. The music moved the Nation's spirit and helped to sustain the nation's morale during World War II, the pivotal event of the 1940s. IN THE MOOD recreates the rhythmic, jazzy, brassy, sentimental, romantic and patriotic music of this important time.
IN THE MOOD celebrates America's Greatest Generation through the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and other idols of the 1940s. The show's musical arrangements, costumes and choreography are as authentic as it gets.
This brassy, upbeat 1940s musical revue features a company of 19 on stage: the sensational thirteen-piece String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and the In The Mood Singers and Dancers including a high-flying swing dance couple.
