From the creative team that brought you My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra, the most produced musical revue in America this season, now comes Moon River: Johnny Mercer's American Songbook, featuring 50 songs from 50 years - from the big band and radio shows of the 1920¹s to the great Hollywood film scores of the 1960's and 70's.

With such standards as "One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)," "Summerwind," "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Fools Rush In," "Accentuate the Positive," "Jeepers Creepers," "Button Up Your Overcoat," "Autumn Leaves," "Zip a Dee Doo Dah," "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby," "Satin Doll," "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Too Marvelous for Words," "Java Jive," and "Winter Wonderland," it's almost impossible to get through a day of our lives without hearing at least one Johnny Mercer song on the radio, television, in movie houses, theaters or cabarets all over the world. Relive the hits of the War Years that are forever emblazoned on our memories, like "That Old Black Magic," "Candy," "Skylark," "GI Jive," and the unforgettable "Dream." Remember the Golden Age of Hollywood with such award-winning movie themes as "Blues in the Night," "Hooray for Hollywood," "On the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe," "Laura," "Charade," "The Days of Wine and Roses," and of course the ultimate in American nostalgia, "Moon River."

Johnny Mercer won four Academy Awards, wrote seven Broadway musicals, and penned lyrics or music for 1,500 great American songs. Moon River: Johnny Mercer's American Songbook takes a sentimental journey with the best of them - the songs of our lives - a virtual soundtrack to the 20th century.
