The show, which features a score of classic hit songs by various artists from the 1960s, will make its New York premiere at New World Stages in February.
Forget all your troubles, forget all your cares! The new musical A Sign of the Times is set to make its New York premiere at New World Stages in the spring. Performances begin February 7 ahead of a February 22 opening.
A Sign of the Times is set in summer 1965, when a young photographer is trying to make her way in the world amid a changing world, with the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, and women's liberation movements going on all around her.
Written by Lindsey Hope Pearlman, based on an original story by Richard J. Robin, A Sign of the Times features a score of classic pop hits from the 1960s, such as “Downtown,” "You Don't Own Me," "The Shoop Shoop Song," "I Know a Place," and "Rescue Me." The show previously played at Goodspeed Musicals’ Norma Terris Theatre in 2016 and the Delaware Theatre Company in 2018.
Gabriel Barre directs the Off-Broadway premiere, and JoAnn M. Hunter choreographs. The creative team also includes set designer Evan Adamson, costume designer Johanna Pan, lighting designer Ken Billington, sound designer Shannon Slaton, and projection designer Brad Peterson.
Casting for A Sign of the Times has yet to be announced.
