Travel back to the Swing Era with one of the finest big bands of all time: The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. Driven by the perfectionism of its founder and leader, trombonist Tommy Dorsey, the Orchestra defined the sound of an entire generation, charting 15 No. 1 hits and introducing the world to a young singer from Hoboken, Frank Sinatra. Now under the direction of Terry Myers, the Orchestra comes to the Carpenter Performing Arts Center, ready to play such chart-toppers as "Night and Day," "I'll Never Smile Again," "Marie," "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "Song of India," "Opus One" and "Skylark." Treat your ears to everything from dance numbers to ballads, all played with the style and grace forever associated with that "Sentimental Gentleman of Swing," Tommy Dorsey. Learn More

Parking was $5--we were surprised we had to pay for parking
Parking is very convenient, and the $5 charge is very reasonable.
Casual dress is fine, and that's what most people chose

Great show; very clever the way all the music is used to to compliment the story. It was great!! this show tells you what the 60s are all about--love, drugs, alcoholism and people trying to be honest about society's shortcoming. Thank God we are not beige!!

Having been around in the 60's this reminded me of how T.V. and other media used to portray the "hippies" in those days. Rather silly and cartoonish with lots of peace signs, fringe and beads and people saying "groovy" all the time in a stoned way. It wasn't really quite like that. For the most part they also picked some of the most bland, commercial music from the sixties top forty parade. All that combined with a formulaic seen-it-a-hundred-times-before-story-line led to a very underwhelming experience. I have to admit the mostly over 50 audience seemed to love it but it wasn't nearly as good as it could have been considering the rich source material they had to work with.
