BWW Review: SPIRIT OF THE SIXTIES at Downtown Cabaret Theatre Photo BWW Review: SPIRIT OF THE SIXTIES at Downtown Cabaret Theatre
by Sean Fallon - Apr 23, 2022

On Friday, April 22, 2022, I had the pleasure of seeing another phenomenal production at the Downtown Cabaret Theatre in Bridgeport, CT.   I have been looking forward to SPIRIT OF THE SIXTIES since I first heard of it, and even more when I found out that it has the same stellar cast as their previous Decades in Concert production, The Sounds of the Seventies.  Robert Peterpaul, Mikayla Petrilla, Everton Ricketts, and Saige Bryan yet again showcase their collective first-rate talents as individuals and as a cohesive group, singing and dancing under the excellent direction and choreography of Jennifer Kaye, and accompanied by pre-recorded instrumentation.   Phill Hill’s clever writing shines through on this amazing selection of about fifty songs from a decade that many would regard as the greatest decade of music in music history!   It is clear that the cast is having as wonderful a time performing on stage as the audience is watching them perform!
