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. IN THE MOOD takes a look at America’s Swing Era, the last time when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music.
It recreates defining moments from the 1930s/1940s – from the happy-go-lucky era before WWII – to the start of the war when thousands of our youth were going abroad to defend our freedoms – and longing for the end of the war when loved ones would be reunited. The famous LIFE MAGAZINE picture “The Kiss” by Alfred Eisenstaedt epitomized such a moment. The music arrangements of these American songs evoke powerful emotions even in people who were born decades after WWII.
Swing Music inspired America with a vision for the future filled with hope, promise and prosperity. This music moved the Nation’s SPIRIT and helped to sustain the nation’s morale during World War II, arguably the pivotal event of the 20th Century.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, all the children you see on stage are here because of their extraordinary ability and love of language - but only one of them can go on to compete in the National Spelling Bee!” In this raucous musical comedy, six enthusiastic mid-pubescents compete for the greatest win of their short lifetimes. Overseen by adults who aren’t much more mature than the spellers themselves, these young people have to learn that winning the bee isn’t necessarily the win that they’re looking for.
