SHOUT! is a non-stop journey through the infectious and soulful pop anthems and ballads that made household names of stars like Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield and Lulu. In this Austin Powers-like musical, hits like “To Sir With Love,” “Downtown,” “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me,” “Son of A Preacher Man,” and “Goldfinger” frame the journey of five women during the liberating days of the 1960s that made England swing!
The first edition of SHOUT! appeared on stage at the Duplex in New York in 2000 and then transferred to London’s Jermyn Street Theatre, where it was nominated as Best Musical by WhatsOnStage. SHOUT! had the London critics raving during its sold-out run there in 2001. The Times cheered, SHOUT! “captures all the soulful heartbreak of the ‘60s diva songbook.” WhatsOnStage.com said, “Here’s a show to really shout about!… hits you with a burst of noisy energy and sheer talent that simply takes your breath away.”
SHOUT! ran Off-Broadway at The Julia Miles Theatre in New York City for 176 performances in 2006. Good Morning America called SHOUT! “The hottest new musical in New York.” TimeOut raved “SHOUT! rivals Jersey Boys for sheer fun.” “Sassy, saucy and immensely satisfying… it’s simply smashing!” glowed the New Jersey Courier-Post. “Clever and charming.. gets ‘em up dancing!” declared the Scottsdale AZ Tribune.
