Those involved with the show speak of the 'brotherhood of Plaid' that exists between those who have performed or directed the show previously, with the understanding that if called upon at any time to take part in a production of the musical, it would be a crime to not jump in and make the show an audience favorite. So when I was invited to the current production at the International City Theatre in Long Beach, I jumped at the chance to see what all the fuss is about. (more...)

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!
