In The Mood celebrates America’s Greatest Generation through the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and more.
In The Mood recreates the Swing era with sizzling choreography, sassy costumes and over 40 songs performed live on stage, like “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (of Company B),” “In The Mood,” “Tuxedo Junction,” “Sing, Sing, Sing” and more.
In The Mood takes a look at the life and times of America’s Swing Era when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music. Swing music ranged from mellow intimate ballads to up-tempo big band rhythms, where the waltz and fox trot competed with the wild, acrobatic jitterbug and jive, and when boogie-woogie crazed hepcats crowded the dance floors.
Swing 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.
