1. It’s The ’60s Baby!
This show is a true flashback to London in the ’60s. The music, the costumes, the colors, the hairstyle, the boots—goodness the boots are great!—it all takes the audience on a trip back in time.
2. Your Favorite Songs Are Back
So here’s the plot of this Broadway revue: It follows five young girls as they come of age over a 10-year stretch. And you better believe these young gals are performing the tippity-top hits from the musical charts of the day. You’ll be toe tapping along with “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Downtown,” “These Boots Were Made For Walking” and more.
3. It’s All About Women’s Lib!
This show, which first debuted off Broadway in 2006, is all about women’s empowerment, which seems wonderfully on point these days (we see you Madam Vice President!). SHOUT! takes its audience through a stretch in time when women discovered their voice, their power and their sisterhood, and that story is just as relevant today in 2021 whether you’re 10, 22, 65 or 101.
4. The Show is Full of Advice (Good and Bad)
Naturally, if you had a question in the ’60s, you wrote into an advice column, probably Dear Abby. So, of course, SHOUT!’s leading ladies are sending in their burning questions to the sage Gwendolyn Holmes, queen of the advice column. And also like the ’60s, not all of Gwendolyn’s advice holds up in 2021. If you’re having boy troubles and need some advice, bring your questions with you to the show, but be warned—you’ll probably head home reminded that it’s a good thing we don’t live in the ’60s anymore.
5. These Dance Moves Will Inspire
Truly, this choreography is a love note to the 1960s. The choreographers for this show definitely did their research, which means the audience gets its fill of the twist, the frug, the beloved watusi, and something called the swim.
