Tommy Dorsey Orchestra

  • Tommy Dorsey was: the legendary bandleader who shaped the sound of swinging pre-war America
  • His instrument of choice: the trombone
  • The nickname that probably barred him from joining a motorcycle gang: “The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing”
  • Vocalists whose careers he helped launch: Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, and Jo Stafford
  • How many times he cracked the Billboard Top 40: 286
  • What he once said to Buddy Morrow: “You know, someday you’ll be running this band.”
  • When that came true: from 1977 to 2010, when he passed away
  • Who took over then: Terry Myers, or in the words of Buddy, “undoubtedly one of the best all-around reed players in the country today.”

Levoy Theatre

There was no joy—or Puccini—in Millville when the Wilson Opera House burned to rubble in 1898. Thankfully for entertainment seekers, the Levoy Theatre rose from those ashes just 10 years later. As with many theaters in the National Register of Historic Places, the Levoy witnessed vaudeville’s demise when Warner Brothers turned it into a movie house in 1930. Yet the replacement of live comedy with talkies was to the theater’s benefit, snaking crowds around the block throughout the ’40s. When the age of multiplexes arose, however, the Levoy began to erode, leading to 36 years of vacancy and tumbleweeds rolling past its doors. Then, in 1998, the Levoy Theater Preservation Society formed to save the landmark from extinction and restore its luster. Today, the marquee, facade, and interiors mirror the Levoy of the 1920s, and brand-new seats and a souped-up sound system help audiences forget about the world outside. But despite the times, the Levoy hasn’t forgotten its roots, and at its 2012 reopening the silent films of Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton graced the screen, accompanied by a ragtime orchestra.

Levoy Theatre

There was no joy—or Puccini—in Millville when the Wilson Opera House burned to rubble in 1898. Thankfully for entertainment seekers, the Levoy Theatre rose from those ashes just 10 years later, starting out as a silent movie hall and vaudeville house in 1908. As with many theaters in the National Register of Historic Places, the Levoy witnessed vaudeville's demise when Warner Brothers turned it into a movie house in 1930. It saw great success throughout the '40s, but then suffered 36 years of vacancy during the age of the multiplexes. Then, in 1998, the Levoy Theater Preservation Society formed to save the landmark from extinction and restore its luster. Today, the marquee, facade, and interiors mirror the Levoy of the 1920s, and brand-new seats and a souped-up sound system help audiences forget about the world outside. The theater's diverse array of programming includes music concerts, dance productions, movies, and comedies, as well as dramas and musicals by The Off Broad Street Players, its resident theater company. But despite the times, the Levoy hasn't forgotten its roots, and at its 2013 reopening the silent films of Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton graced the screen, accompanied by a ragtime orchestra.
