SHOUT! The Mod Musical
Sep. 25 – Oct. 16, 2021
Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein.
Our first show back in the Saratoga Theater is pure, frothy fun. With its irresistible blend of hip-swiveling hits, eye-popping fashions and outrageous dance moves, SHOUT! The Mod Musical takes us back to the 1960s with terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as “To Sir with Love,” “Downtown,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” and “Goldfinger.” Follow five groovy gals as they redefine themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender. The hits are tied together by hilarious sound bites—from ’60s commercials to 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.”
On the Town
May 20 – June 4, 2022
Music by Leonard Bernstein. Lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Based on the ballet Fancy Free by Jerome Robbins.
Combine a soaring Leonard Bernstein score, witty lyrics by Comden and Green, and a sweet tale about three sailors grabbing 24 hours of shore leave in New York City before shipping off to World War II, and you get an American classic that is renowned for its timeless exuberance. With brash, spectacular, and slightly bittersweet abandon, On the Town is a tale about seizing the day and living life to its fullest. It features the seductively upbeat “I Can Cook, Too;” the melancholically beautiful ballad, “Lonely Town;” and that most beloved of toe-tapping tunes, “New York, New York.”
