In The Mood
It was the sound of a war ending and a nation healing. It was the sound of times changing. And it was the sound of young people hitting the dance floor with determination. In the Mood pays rousing tribute to the heyday of swing with a smattering of romantic, patriotic, and all-around fun tunes from the 1940s. Backed by a 13-piece big band, six singers don period getups, such as GI uniforms, flowing skirts, and “nuke-proof” T-shirts, as they melt the stage with fast-moving swing skills. While dancing, the performers belt out 40 instantly recognizable melodies from the likes of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and The Andrews Sisters, including “Chattanooga Choo Choo” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (Of Company B).”<p>
Cutler Majestic Theatre
When prominent Bostonian Eben Dyer Jordan set out to create the city’s most distinctive theater in the late 1890s, he looked no further than architect John Galen Howard. Educated at MIT, Howard finished his studies at L’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, becoming one of only 400 American architects at the time to study at the prestigious institute. The combined influences manifest themselves in his buildings, where a unique American practicality blended with rococo ornamentation. Howard also showed he was a man of the times: he accented the tall columns and soaring arches of his structure with the newly invented electric light bulb—4,000 of them.
Today, Howard’s fusion style still gives the Cutler Majestic Theatre a unique voice. The effect starts with the towering classical facade, greeting visitors with somber ionic columns, leavened by bright footlights and colorful stained-glass windows. Inside, the Beaux-Arts influence comes to the fore, with brights murals, marble moldings, and plaster coated in gold leaf, earning the Majestic its nickname, “The House of Gold.”
