Go back to the 60s at The Mahaffey Friday, Nov. 23, 8 p.m.
ST. PETERSBURG - The decade of peace, love, and rock and roll comeS roaring back to life in St. Petersburg during one exciting performance at The Mahaffey on Friday, Nov. 23, 8 p.m.

“This is the ‘60s” is an immersive multimedia blend of live music, film, dance, fashion and animation. More than a stage show, and much more than a concert, “This is the ‘60s” takes the audience on journey back in time that will not soon be forgotten.

Tickets for this one night only show are priced $25 to $55 and are subject to additional convenience fees and handling charges. Purchase tickets online at TheMahaffey.com, or charge by phone at 727-893-7832. Tickets may also be purchased at the Mahaffey Theater Box Office. The Box Office is open Wednesday through Saturday, from noon to 6:00 p.m. and at least 90 minutes prior to any ticketed event.

Groups of ten or more can save. Call 727-892-5716 for more information.

From the early days of the space program, through the hysteria of Beatlemania, and into the darkness of the Vietnam War, “This is the ‘60s” merges this entire turbulent decade into a cohesive and enthralling stage production. Featuring 35 songs from the soundtrack that united an entire generation, “This is the ‘60s” features the music of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Monkees, The Mamas & The Papas, The Fifth Dimension, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Three Dog Night, Jefferson Airplane, and many more. Performed live with no pre-recorded samples, the show features the skill and versatility of seven seasoned performers. Their note-for-note recreations of classic songs will keep audiences captivated throughout the evening.

Interspersed with the music and dance are vintage film clips featuring major news events, pop culture fads, and vintage TV commercials that carry the audience back 50 years. While many of the clips bring laughter and reminiscing, others are more poignant, such as the muffled drum cadence of President Kennedy’s funeral procession or the escalating war in Vietnam. The film clips also bring new depth and understanding to songs like Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” and Dion’s “Abraham, Martin & John.”

His unique show is the brainchild of producer/director Jim Duffy, a veteran documentary filmmaker, author and musician, who has created programming for Discovery Networks and other national media outlets. “I combined the two elements I love most: music and storytelling,” explains Duffy. “’This is the ‘60s’ takes the audience on a journey—one that’s designed to entertain, educate, and stimulate."
