The hilariously charming hit musical Forever Plaid will take you on a trip to the fifties with Sparky, Jinx, Smudge and Frankie, a fictional 1950's boy band. The group was tragically, and inconveniently struck down before their first big gig. "The Plaids" will be brought back to earth to take the stage one last time. Forever Plaid will run now through February 6th. Check out highlights from the production in the video below!
This critically acclaimed musical celebrates the precision harmonies and well choreographed moves that were the epitome of 1950's traditional values, home and harmony. Forever Plaid showcases the upbeat music made popular in the 1950s by artists and groups such as Perry Como, Eddie Fisher, The Four Lads and The Ames Brothers. It also includes such hits as "Catch A Falling Star," "Sixteen Tons," "Crazy 'Bout Ya Baby" and "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing." This hilarious production is fun for the entire family.
