This is a great show! The orchestra was outstanding. It was as if Glen Miller, Guy Lombardo, Les Brown, etc. were actually there - their sound was so authentic. The dancing was terrific. My husband's only complaint was that he wished they would...continued

only stayed for the first half. It did not have the high energy that I was expecting. More upbeat please! It is called "In the Mood". I would have thought they would want us in a jubilant mood

The orchestra was fantastic. I wish there was a little less singing and dancing overall. The pieces by orchestra-only were shortened, so we felt a little short-changed on the music itself. The one other criticism was the host of the show...continued

This was a fantastic show. The venue was great. I had never been to Spreckles Theater, but there probably wasn't a bad seat in the house. The dancers were great. The singing was awesome. And the band was incredible. And at the end they pay...continued

It was lovely. I was born after the Second World War but I have always loved the songs of that era and before . I was exposed to these songs through the old movies on television and through artists. The songs, many of them are timeless and...continued

The music and dance routines were wonderful. The singers voices were exceptionally beautiful and carried well. As a dancer myself, I was so amazed at how well they danced and sang at the same time! Kudos for a great show.

Attended with 2 octogenarians that thoroughly enjoyed the show. We, slightly younger folks, also loved it. What a terrific way to highlight such a significant time in America.

I loved loved loved the band, disliked the extra fluff like the actors and singers overpowering the music. I truly felt as if I was listening to a cd music sample only a few seconds of the songs played before they switched and got taken over by...continued

I’d give it 3 ½ stars if the option was available. I had a good time but was expecting and hoping for more swing instead of the “sweeter” big band numbers.

The performers were all excellent vocalists and obviously chosen for their singing...continued

Very entertaining show! Good variety. Might have been more compelling in a smaller venue. It's terrific to still be able to hear this wonderful music; thanks for keeping it alive!
