COVID-19 update for IN THE MOOD. Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our Fall 2021 tour for all our scheduled performances in the USA and Australia. Our hearts and minds are certainly with those that have lost their lives and their families and friends have our deepest sympathies.

April 2021 update: Unfortunately, as we all know, the COVID 19 virus seems to want to be part of our lives for a longer time than we expected. We all thought that things would return to "normal" sooner than later. however that is not the case.

Many people have contacted me to ask about when are we touring again. Honestly, I'm not sure, but it seems it will be no sooner than the Spring of 2022. Broadway shows and tours all closed down and many theatrical agencies - some of the largest in the business - are closing or indeed have already done so. Theaters are hanging on trying a variety of virtual shows but in general, all this is very difficult for producers, performers, musicians, and technicians who have relied on working in an industry that we all love for so many years. Planning a tour of many cities and towns requires a great deal of work in advance.

All of us with IN THE MOOD are thinking greatly about the loss of loved ones that can never be replaced. I'm even sure that some even attended performances over the years. And then jobs for all the performing art centers personnel - administrative people, production, ushers, security and other staff. Let's not forget the thousands of other performing organizations, tours, symphonies, entertainers on cruise ships and theme parks along with all associated within the industry. We can only hope that this does not go on for too much longer.

And of course, our very talented IN THE MOOD musicians, singers, dancers, and technicians are all in the same situation. I know that we all would rather be on the bus coming to visit our many fans. We are all only hoping for the best outcome for everyone around the world. Please be safe and take care of those that you know.

    Meet the Cast & Crew

    IN THE MOOD tours with an amazing cast of performers and a world-class production staff from all over the U.S. and we are looking forward to entertaining our fans that are returning to see the show again (some for the 8th time!) and those that are coming for the first time.


    IN THE MOOD is a celebration of the music of the 1930s & 40s – the Big Band era. It was the last time that all Americans were listening and dancing to the same kind of music. With our live sensational 13 piece String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and our fabulous IN THE MOOD Singers and Dancers, the great melodies and lyrics that are still with us today are presented in a musical revue that is jazzy, sentimental, rhythmic, nostalgic and patriotic – all happening at the same time. With music arrangements, costumes and choreography IN THE MOOD is as authentic as it gets.
