To the delight of fans of the American Big Bands and the Big Band era, the brassy, all-singing, all-dancing, all-American 1940s musical revue, In The Mood is coming to the Plaza Theatre, Saturday, April 1 at 7:30PM in celebration of 23 years on tour.
Hop aboard the “Chattanooga Choo Choo” to “Tuxedo Junction” and get “In The Mood” for a “Moonlight Serenade.” In the Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra and other idols of the ’40s.
Complete with authentic costumes, music arrangements and choreography, In The Mood pays homage to America’s greatest generation who fought WWII. It was a time when Americans listened and boogie woogied to up-tempo big band rhythms and danced cheek-to-cheek to intimate ballads. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, sentimental and patriotic music of this pivotal time in America’s history.
The musical revue has a cast of nineteen on stage: the sensational 13-piece String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and the 6 swing Singers and Dancers performing over fifty unforgettable hits — “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Well Get It”, “Sing, Sing Sing”, “On The Sunny Side of the Street” and many more.
Now in its 22nd season of sold-out performances across the United States, Canada and England, In The Mood wowed Australia for 3 years in a row and is returning to Australia in the fall of 2017.
Tickets for the In The Mood range in price from $29 to $49 plus taxes and fees and are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone at 800-745-3000 and the Plaza Theater Box Office.
