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 music 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.

In The Mood recreates the era with sizzling choreography, sassy costumes and over 40 unforgettable 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.

Now in its 19th season of sold-out performances across the United States, Canada and England, IN THE MOOD wowed Australia and New Zealand with a 16-city tour during August and September of 2011.

IN THE MOOD takes a look at America’s Swing Era, the last time 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.
