Boogie Woogie to the Theatre

Born in 1904, Glenn Miller was an American big band musician. A best seller in wartime, he wrote famous tunes such as 'In the Mood', 'Moonlight Serenade', 'Pennsylvania 6-5000', 'Chattanooga Choo Choo', 'A String of Pearls', 'Little Brown Jug', and 'American Patrol'.

In December 1944, he was flying to France to entertain the troops when bad weather cause his plane to disappear over the English Channel, and he was declared missing in action.

Playwright, Den Stevenson, wrote a book about Miller, which traced the musicians life from college to becoming a performer, and finally his disappearance. Now he has turned the story into a swinging musical. Bugle Boy is currently on a UK tour, and features all his classic songs, including 'We'll Meet Again', 'White Cliffs of Dover', and 'Boogie Wooge Bugle Boy'.
