REVIEW: The Glenn Miller Story at MK Theatre

The Glenn Miller Story

The Glenn Miller Story at MK Theatre

In this new, dazzling production, the audience are taken through the ups and downs of the life of Glenn Miller. He begins with a simple trombone and the hopes of becoming a world-famous star. Then, once meeting and marrying Helen Burger, he finally reaches the stardom he has always dreamed of.

However having become accustomed to this life of fame and fortune, the music legend suddenly vanishes as he flies to Paris over the English Channel during WWII, intending to go and entertain the troops. It really was a performance of fame and hope shrouded in mystery… What really happened to Glenn Miller?

A live band performed the stunning music throughout the show and how fantastic it was! The songs include ‘It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing’, ‘Sing Sing Sing’, ‘Get Happy’ and ‘Moonlight Serenade’, all of which were extremely popular, with the audience often clapping and singing along.

Tommy Steele himself played an absolutely fantastic role; he was captivating and so likeable – especially when he spoke to the audience at the very end. Another actor who really stood out was Sarah Soetaert who played Helen Burger. She has such an incredible voice, which harmonises so well with Tommy Steele’s tone.

The Glenn Miller Story is on at Milton Keynes Theatre until 31st October – visit atgtickets.com to book.
