Glenn Miller was the best-selling recording artist in the world from 1939 to 1943, leading one of the best known big bands. In those four years, he scored 23 No. 1 hits—more than Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

This production follows the journey the band leader took to find his unique sound and his subsequent fame and untimely death. Songs include “In the Mood,” “Moonlight Serenade,” “Little Brown Jug,” “Pennsylvania 6-5000,” “Tuxedo Junction,” and “Chattanooga Choo Choo.”

The Glenn Miller Story is produced by Bill Kenwright with choreography by Olivier winner Bill Deamer and direction by Bob Tomson and Kenwright.
