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.
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 18th season of sold-out performances across the United States, Canada and England, IN THE MOOD has just completed a 16-city Australia-New Zealand tour during August and September of 2011.
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.
