Details of Summer Of Love and the Ticket Luck value
Summer of Lovetickets invite all theater lovers to watch a brilliant reflection on the pivotal moments in the Western social evolution. Summer of Love is a play as a protest and is a par of musical concerts in the San Francisco bay area since it began in 1967. The play is the brain child of Roger Bean, who is both the writer and director of this excellent show. In the past he created and directed the Off-Broadway show The Marvelous Wonderettes, which won critical acclaim as well as the 2007 Los Angeles Ovation Award for Best Musical show.
The play carries forward the true legacy of the phenomenon from the late sixties, where tens of thousands of pro-peace protesters gathered and demonstrated in San Francisco, California. Summer of Love tries to capture the essence of the hippie counter culture and the movement that spread across the western hemisphere after these protests. The Summer of Love has tried to capture the significance of this time via retrospective music. In this case Rock and Roll and progressive rock movement inspired songs and music takes the lead in depicting the time and tide
Summer of Love is a play that appreciates the series of events that lead to the creation of this play. They drew sharp reactions from the social establishment of the day. The Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967 was a key part of the schedule, which featured some of the leading socially progressive musical artists of the time. It is estimated that an average of just under fifty thousand people attended the multi day event. The line-up of artists was indeed impressive, and included acts that would later on become some of the greatest legends in rock & roll. This included the famous British hard rockers, The Who( the god fathers of psychedelic rock), Grateful Dead (the revolutionary progressive rock outfit), The Jimi Hendrix Experience as well other future rock legends like Jefferson Airplane, Otis Redding, The Byrds, and the Animal.
Another important part of this saga was the song San Francisco that was written to promote the Monterey Pop Festival. Ironically it became a massive commercial hit, topped out at number four the U.S. charts and was at the very top of the UK charts. To this day the song is the quintessence symbol of the hippie and the Summer of Love movement of late sixties in particular and the San Francisco’s cultural legacy in general. In the give historical context one can appreciate the play as it tried to highlight how creative expression and honest heart felt music combined to symbolize the era.
Summer of Love is an effort that recounts the story of a young woman Holly, who travels to San Francisco to experience and be a part of something that she hopes, is bigger than herself. In fact, she arrives on the scene, having run away from her own wedding, essentially rebelling against the status quo. She has a longing to experiment with something different and unconventional; in essence she wants to experience her own Summer of Love. As she wanders through the sea of people populating the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, she realizes that the event has a different meaning for every individual. They are all trying to internalize the experience and reflect on it, ultimately deciding what it means for their lives. Holly eventually finds what she was looking for and learns to make her own kind of music.
