A Sign of the Times

1965. The pulse of a changing era lures Cindy from Middle America to the swirl of Manhattan. Unexpected friends, lovers, careers and conflicts are all a subway ride away in a pop-fueled new musical featuring songs made famous by Petula Clark and other hit-makers of the day. "I Know a Place," "The Shoop Shoop Song" and "If I Can Dream" are among the fabulous favorites on an eye-opening ride from innocence to experience. Forget all your troubles, forget all your cares—go "Downtown" and find out who you are!

Funny..Funny..Funny! The entire cast is superb, the lead Cindy (played by Ephie Aardema) is a powerful liitle dynamo. Tonya (Crystal Perry) is another standout. Outside of a few noticeable staging blunders, this show is Broadway ready !!

This show is hot. The entire cast is superb, and Ephie Aardema is off-the-charts talented! I can't wait to see where this lands next -

LOVED IT!! This show has legs!! I think it will be on Broadway. Of course, Norma Terris is a work in progress and our performance was almost 3 hours. They will need to cut that down. GO SEE THIS!

My first show at the Terris Theater. A small venue with a good view of the stage from anywhere. A Sign of The Times just opened on 7/29 so we were among the first to see it on 7/30. The show was pretty good. I would give it 3 1/2 out of 5. The music was well performed and kept your foot tapping. I knew a few of the songs but my 20 yr old son and daughter had never heard of any of them. They generally enjoyed the show. There were several good performers, I would say Tanya (Crystal) was the best. Cindy (Ephie) did a good job and well represented the role of a midwest girl moving to the big city. That said I think it would have worked better with a bigger voice in the lead role. She sang well but doesn't have a big stage presence you would expect in the lead spot. The breakup scene between Cindy and Matt towards the end needs some work. A little awkward (a few rather rude people behind me were laughing). A couple spots where the audio tech wasn't keeping up with transitions but I'm sure that will improve after a couple more shows. Not going to see this on Broadway soon but it was worth the price of admission at the Terris.
