Much more than just a concert, In the Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and other big band greats of the '40s. Complete with costumes, choreography, a 13-piece big band and six singer-dancers, this show pays homage to America's greatest generation, when people boogied to up-tempo big band rhythms. Hear songs like "In the Mood," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Sing, Sing, Sing" and more timeless hits. Many of the musical arrangements were written by Vic Schoen, the conductor and arranger for The Andrews Sisters, and music director for both Universal and Paramount Pictures. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, brassy, sentimental music of this pivotal time in America's history. Learn More

Author Jonathan Franzen investigates the personal dynamics of fiction writing by addressing four perennial questions that novelists are asked: Who are your influences? What time of day do you work and what do you write on? Do your characters “take over” and tell you what to do? And, is your fiction autobiographical?
