A Sign of the Times follows Cindy, a young photographer who moves to New York and tries to find her way in a changing world, when the Vietnam War, civil rights movements, and women's liberation movements are all swirling around her.

The book is by Lindsey Hope Pearlman, based on an original story by Richard J. Robin, and the show is set to dozens of hit songs from the 1960s by artists like Petula Clark, Lesley Gore, Dusty Springfield, and more.
