Last night I went to see a new musical called Shout at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton. The musical takes you through the 1960’s following three young girls, Betty, Georgina and Ruby (Claire Sweeney), who move to London, and Yvonne (Su Pollard) an aunt who runs a hair salon.

The musical is jammed full of 60’s hits that can’t fail but have you clapping and tapping your feet in the crowd.  There isn’t too much of a storyline, other than glimpses of the girls lives (and loves) during the decade but the musical is loads of fun.  Interspersed throughout the scenes Howard Jones plays a number of male roles – playing cheesy adverts from a women’s magazine, a radio DJ and the men in the girls lives.  There was some really funny scenes as he acted out short ad’s for ‘women… how to make the man in your life happy’.

All of the cast had really strong voices which went well with the songs.  All in all, a really fun night out.
