In December 1944 a little single-engine aircraft carrying the world famous big band leader, Glenn Miller, vanished somewhere between North Bedfordshire and Paris.
Did the plane crash? Was it shot down? Will the mystery of its disappearance ever be solved? Seventy-one years on, Major Miller is still classed as 'Missing in Action'.
New musical The Glenn Miller Story - showing at MK Theatre from Monday (Oct 26), won't be offering up any startling revelations about the whereabouts of Major Miller.
But you will get to see the UK’s great song and dance man, Tommy Steele, re-introduce all the great Glenn Miller tunes performed by a 16-piece orchestra with a full supporting company of singers, actors and dancers.
The Glenn Miller Story comes from director Bob Tomson and producer Bill Kenwright, the same creative team behind Blood Brothers, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar; choreography is by Olivier Award winner, Bill Deamer.
For some years Bill Kenwright had been looking for another chance to work with his long-time idol Tommy Steele.
It was when they discovered the movie adaptation of Glenn Miller’s story was a particular favourite of them both that the idea for this show was born.
Tommy Steele, now a lively 79 year old, was Britain’s original rock n’ roll star landing his first UK No.1 with Singing the Blues in January 1957.
His career highlights include more than 20 hit singles, twelve successful movies and countless award-winning stage musicals.
Tickets start at £17.50.
