This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950s on the way to their first big concert, and now miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was.
Description: 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 '50s.
With a modest production size (a piano, bass, four microphones and little else), this theatrical morsel succeeds on the basis of clever musical arrangements, a young ensemble cast with strong rapport, and a solid understanding of the “Plaid” style.
The original production opened Off-Broadway on May 20th, 1990 and ran for 1664 performances.
The show is a harmonic blend of nostalgia, comedy and music.
Currently playing an open-ended run at the Gold Coast in Las Vegas.
