Summer, 1965. In this whirlwind of flower power, free love, and rock & roll, one aspirational young woman finds herself in New York City – ready to dive into this brave new world. You’re invited to journey back to America’s most unforgettable decade as a young photographer tries to make her way in the world amid the changing times and changing music that defined an era. A totally original story with such classic songs as Downtown, Gimme Some Lovin’, Rescue Me, and I Know A Place, plus dozens more, A SIGN OF THE TIMES explodes with the music you love, the moves you’ll never forget, and the madness that shaped that generation – and our own.
A Sign of the Times had its world premiere at Goodspeed Musicals’ Norma Terris Theatre in 2016 and played a sold out, critically acclaimed run at the Delaware Theatre Company in 2018. Delaware News Journal called the show, “Infectious & Rocking! The funny, candy-colored musical struts across the stage with catchy songs and 1960s issues that resonate today.” The Philadelphia Inquirer said, “the electricity reverberates across the stage.” Broad Street Review raved that the show is full of, “sheer exuberance! The music never stops.”
