Music Theatre International says:
When four young singers are killed in a car crash, they posthumously take the stage in one final gig in this goofy 1950’s nostalgia trip.
FOREVER PLAID is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies, wrapped in a pitch-perfect theatrical confection!
Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and entertaining and got together, dreaming of becoming like their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company they became “Forever Plaid”. On the way to their first big gig they were slammed broadside by a school bus. The members of “Forever Plaid” were killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end, that the story of FOREVER PLAID begins….
Singing in the closest of harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950’s.
