With its irresistible blend of hip-swivelling hits, eye-popping fashions and outrageous dance moves, Downtown! The Mod Musical takes audiences back to the music, style and freedom of the 1960's. Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein, SHOUT! features terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as "To Sir with Love," "Son of a Preacher Man," and "Goldfinger."
The review follows five groovy gals as they come of age during those glorious days that made England swing. Travelling in time from 1960 to 1970, SHOUT! chronicles the dawning liberation of women, from the rise of Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark and Cilla Black as independent women with major careers, to their American counterparts, redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender. With a shimmy and shake, the songs are tied together by hilarious sound bites from the period - from '60s advertisements to letters answered by an advice columnist who thinks that every problem can be solved with a "fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick."
