It’s been seventy years since Glenn Miller disappeared over the English Channel as he flew to Paris to entertain the troops during the Second World War. Did he crash? Was he shot down? Will the mystery ever be solved? Brought to the stage for the very first time in a brand new musical spectacular, is the life, fame and vanishing of America’s most famous big band leader, whose music defined an era and story stunned the world.
The show, which features a 16-piece orchestra, will end in Cardiff on November 14th. It will also take in venues in Wimbledon, Southampton, Glasgow, Newcastle, Stoke-On-Trent, Blackpool, Swansea, Wolverhampton, and Manchester during its run.
