Come hear the music that moved The Nation's Spirit! IN THE MOOD is a retro 1940's musical revue that 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 greats of the 1940s. This was a time that all America was listening and dancing to the same kind of music. The combination of up-tempo big band instrumentals and intimate, romantic ballads of the 1940's set the mood for a future filled with promise, hope and prosperity. The music, costumes and choreography are as authentic as it gets! With forty unforgettable songs performed live on stage, including "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (of Company B)," "In The Mood" and "Sing, Sing, Sing," this is sure to be an evening to remember!

Maxwell's will also be open. Sorry, no Picnic on the Patio for this performance.
