Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College concludes its 2009-2010 Arts in the Afternoon series with the 1940s musical revue In the Mood on Sunday, March 28, 2010 at 2pm. Featuring the String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and a cast of six singer/dancers, the showtakes a nostalgic look back at the 1940s, a time in America's history when music and dance set a mood intended to inspire hope, promise and prosperity in the face of World War II.
Conceived by musical producer Bud Forrest, In the Mood features the music of Johnny Mercer, Glenn Miller, Jule Styne, and Harold Arlen, among others, and includes such beloved tunes as "Accentuate the Positive," "Moonlight Serenade," "Sentimental Journey," and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy." The show began touring in 1994, following its inclusion as part of the official entertainment for the World USO's events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the second World War. The show has toured all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe, as well as for one of President Bill Clinton's Inaugural Balls. This appearance is part of In the Mood's 16th national tour.
