Before there was such a thing as retro back when stockings were made from silk and had seams, and before twenty-somethings had the ability to Google Benny Goodman to find out who he was there was big band music.

In the Mood, which takes its name from the popular Glenn Miller tune, celebrates this musical era with a Forties-style revue featuring singers and dancers and something called the String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra.
