DOWNTOWN! The Mod Musical

Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein

Directed by Ron Dowd

SHOUT! is the mod musical magazine that brings back the beautiful birds and smashing sounds that made England swing in the 60’s.

 

From cover-to-cover SHOUT! travels in time from 1960 to 1970 chronicling the dawning liberation of women.  Just as Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Cilla Black, and Lulu were independent women with major careers, English and American women were redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender.  DOWNTOWN! The Mod Musical reflects that change through the unforgettable music of the time.

 

Though DOWNTOWN! wears its heart on its sleeve, it also has its tongue planted firmly in its cheek.  Everything from the period is recreated – from the fashions and the dances to the music and the hair; all of which is heightened and made just a tiny bit larger.

 

Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein (the team that directed and choreographed the Drama Desk Award-winning HOWARD CRABTREE’S WHOOP-DEE-DOO), DOWNTOWN! features terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as TO SIR WITH LOVE, DOWNTOWN, YOU DON’T HAVE TO SAY YOU LOVE ME, SON OF A PREACHER MAN, and GOLDFINGER.  Writers like Tony Hatch, Carol King and Bernie Goffin, Burt Bacharach and Hal David are all heard at the top of their game through songs that resonate with a timeless quality which appeals to every generation.

 

With a shimmy and shake, the songs are tied together by hilarious sound bites from the period – from 60’s advertisements for anything and everything – to lonely hearts letters answered by an advice columnist who thinks every problem can be solved with a “fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick.”

 

With its irresistible blend of foot-stomping songs, eye-popping fashions and psychedelic dances, this delightful musical will make you want to throw your head back and DOWNTOWN!
