“Shout! The Mod Musical” goes back to the Swinging Sixties and chronicles the dawn of women’s liberation reflecting the revolution of the sixties through the unforgettable music that made them famous.
The timeless tunes of artists like Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Cilla Black and Lulu are tied together by the cast of five by hilarious sound-bites from the period including letters to an advice columnist who believes that life’s most daunting problems can be solved with a fetching new hair style or a manicure.
All at once touching and funny, Shout! unashamedly wears it’s heart on its sleeve with moving performances of “To Sir with Love”, “I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself” and “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” interspersed with familiar favourites like “Downtown”, “Shout” and “Goldfinger.”
