PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

A throwback to the early 1960s, FOREVER PLAID, by Stuart Ross, is the story of four young men who met in high school and formed a singing group modeled after their idols The Four Aces, The Four Lads, The Four Freshmen, The Hi-Los and The Crew Cuts. They sang at family gatherings, fund-raisers, and eventually graduated to supermarket openings and proms. Finally, they landed their first big gig at the Airport Hilton cocktail bar The Fusel Lounge. En route to pick up their custom-made plaid tuxedos, they were slammed broadside by a bus filled with eager teens on their way to witness the American debut of The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. While the teens miraculously escaped uninjured, The Plaids were killed instantly. It is at this moment that their careers and lives ended and the story of FOREVER PLAID begins. Through the power of harmony and the expanding holes in the ozone layer, in conjunction with the positions of the planets and all the astrotechnical stuff, they are now allowed to come back and perform the show they never got to do in life. With songs such as Shangri-La, Rags to Riches, Love is A Many Splendored Thing, 16 Tons and Chain Gang, FOREVER PLAID is a 1960s version of the tight harmonies and masterful showmanship of todays boy bands.
