Hop aboard the “Chattanooga Choo Choo” to “Tuxedo Junction” and get In the Mood to hear a “Moonlight Serenade” performed by a 13-piece Big Band and a half dozen singer-dancers and some hot boogie woogie. In The Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, The Andrews Sisters and big band greats of the ’40s. Complete with period costumes and choreography, In The Mood celebrates America’s greatest generation that listened and boogied to up-tempo big band rhythms and danced to intimate ballads. Experience the jazzy, brassy, sentimental and patriotic music of the World War II era.
Many of the musical arrangements were written by, Vic Schoen, conductor and arranger for The Andrews Sisters, and Music Director for both Universal and Paramount Pictures.
