Shout is where it’s at.

While American women prepared to discard their bras, five fabled lassies in the United Kingdom were celebrating their liberation via groovy music, makeup, and miniskirts. Watch these birds sing their story at Shout! The Mod Musical, a revue spectacular told within the framework of ´60s musical magazine features (advice columns, quizzes, and ads), hamming it up all the while. Fans of Laugh-In, Austin Powers, and The Mod Squad may just adore this stomping, singing trip through the psychedelic era. If you “just don’t know what to do with [your]self” this week, catch Shout! at the Parker Playhouse (707 NE Eighth St., Fort Lauderdale) Wednesday and Sunday at 2 p.m., Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., or Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets cost $32 — a bargain compared to getting busted for LSD possession. For more information, call 954-462-0222 or visit www.parkerplayhouse.com. And after the show, bring your ticket stub to Mango’s Restaurant & Lounge (904 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale), where you’ll be treated to a complimentary Malibu, Chambord, and pineapple juice “MOD-tini.” Doesn’t the sound of that make you horny, baby?
