What happened to Glenn Miller remains as much a mystery today as when the Iconic American band-leader went missing at the end of World War 2. It ranks alongside other unsolved mysteries such as who really was William Shakespeare and what really happened to Lord Lucan?
'BUGLE BOY' by English Award Winning Playwright Den Stevenson; traces the life of legendary music Icon Glenn Miller from leaving college to play in various bands including his own as he searches tirelessly for over twenty years, with the constant support and love of his wife Helen, for a unique band sound.
When he eventually succeeds in his quest; he and his family only enjoy the fruits of fame for three short years. When America joined the Second World War after the bombing of Pearl Harbour; he joins the Army, forms the subsequently famed A.E.F Band and flies to Europe to play to the Armed Forces; then goes missing in mysterious circumstances.
Den Stevenson became obsessed with making a musical about the great band leader whilst being Booker for Glenn's younger brother Herb Miller and his Orchestra; honing his unique concept on English soil before presenting the Show in America - firstly in Virginia and then on Broadway where it was choreographed by Duke Ellington's Granddaughter Mercedes Ellington.
'BUGLE BOY' features all of Glenn Miller's famous and instantly recognisable tunes including amongst others Little Brown Jug; Moonlight Serenade; Pennsylvania 6-5000; Chattanooga Choo Choo; Kalamazoo; American Patrol and many others - which has seen this not to be missed Critically Acclaimed Show play to packed audiences and standing ovations across the Country putting everyone who sees it... In The Mood shouting for more!
