Forever Plaid is a "jukebox musical," comprising the top easy-listening hits of the 1950s-songs such as "Lady of Spain," "Three Coins in the Fountain and "Catch a Falling Star"-so the nostalgia factor is high. The plot, as it were, is the story of four lads who came together to form a close-harmony boy band (a la The Four Freshmen), only to find their careers-and lives-cut short by a tragic accident. By magic, they are sent back to Earth to do a big gig they missed back in the day. That creepy twist notwithstanding, the show promises tons of retro fun. (KK)

Audiences are invited to travel back to an era when doo-wop was king, big hairdos were in, cars had enormous fins, and the harmonizing bands of the 50s were all the rage. This smash-hit jukebox musical comedy centers on a quartet whose dream of recording an album ended in a bus collision while on their way to their biggest gig. Now they’ve been miraculously revived for the show that never was. You’ll be humming along with the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s and rolling in the aisles from the delightful patter of the original clean-cut boy band – The Plaids.

Written and originally Directed and Choreographed by Stuart Ross, this entertaining toe-tapper of a show features such hits as "Sixteen Tons," "Chain Gang," "Three Coins in the Fountain," "Perfidia," "Cry," "Catch a Falling Star," "Day-O," "Gotta Be This or That," "Matilda," and "Heart and Soul."

"Screamingly funny! Entirely enchanting, utterly entertaining, awesome! …will put a smile on your face, a hum in your throat and a tap to your feet."
- New York Post

"Letter-perfect! Sweet, funny and thoroughly amusing."

"The laughter doesn't stop! ...Delightful, original and funny!"
