The York Theatre Company will present the Off-Broadway premiere of new musical A Sign of the Times. Featuring the songs of Petula Clark, Lesley Gore, Dusty Springfield, and other 1960s hits, the musical will play New World Stages beginning February 7, 2024 with an official opening night on February 22.

Hunter, music direction and orchestrations by Joseph Church, set design by Evan Adamson, costume design by Johanna Pan, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington, sound design by Shannon Slaton, and projection design by Brad Peterson.
