Four guys who loved to sing - Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie - were on their way up as a musical group. They'd practiced in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company until they had all their moves and harmonies perfect. When they finally booked a gig, they knew they were going to be just like their idols The Four Freshmen, The Hi-Lo's and The Crew Cuts. Their future was bright. Then a bus accident lead to tragedy...but not for long. The moment their lives ended, the magical story of 'Forever Plaid' began, and now it's your chance to enjoy the four-part harmony of songs like 'No Not Much,' 'Cry,' and 'Heart and Soul' as they return from the great beyond, just for you!

BWW Review: Jump Start Your Holiday Spirit with FOREVER PLAID: PLAID TIDINGS at The Winter Park PlayhouseBWW Review: Jump Start Your Holiday Spirit with FOREVER PLAID: PLAID TIDINGS at The Winter Park Playhouse
by April Montgomery - Nov 15, 2015

FOREVER PLAID: PLAID TIDINGS is a holiday sequel to the 1990 Off-Broadway show, FOREVER PLAID, written by Stuart Ross. I have not seen the original show, but can now promise that it is totally unnecessary to have seen the original in order to enjoy the heaven out of the sequel. It is an uncanny and unsuspectingly hilarious holiday musical. The underlying plot is quite bizarre, but the script is so well written that no one seemed to care. The sequel continues from the original storyline, where a clean-cut, male quartet has been sent back to earth (following an unfortunate bus accident with a group of Catholic schoolgirls); this time to bring harmony and good cheer to an inharmonious planet.
