One of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory, this deliciously goofy show centers on four eager young male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950’s on their way to their first big concert, who are miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfil their dreams and perform the show that never was. Singing in the closest of harmonies, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, “Plaids” is a wonderful evening 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 greatest nostalgic pop hits of the 50’s.
