How was your experience?
In The Mood was Swell!!!!!!!!! My 23 year old daughter accompanied me to this performance and she loved it as much as I did. There were very few children and young adults in the audience as the target audience was definitely the older crowd, but I don't think age should matter because the show had so much appeal. This was a USO show for those of us that missed the 30's and 40's or those remembering that time period. The big band sound was provided by excellent musicians, especially the trumpet player and lead saxophone. The show also featured singers and two main dancers. I loved hearing the old standards I recognized and the three songs I did not. The first half features music from the 30's and the 40's came after intermission. Bring a tissue for the second part, not even kidding. The 'Salute to the Military' had each branch of the service represented, in song, and current and past soldiers were asked to stand and be recognized during their branch's tribute. There were many, all standing in a salute. I was especially touched by an elderly man attempting to stand who was helped to his feet by three total strangers. Like I said, bring tissues. Danny Boy even made my daughter cry. They did manage to end on a happy note, in our case, with Deep in the Heart of Texas. The Eisemann Center offers great shows without having to travel into downtown Dallas. To see if 'In The Mood' will be in your town next go to www.InTheMoodLive.com
