Storyline

Forever Plaid is an affectionate musical homage to the close-harmony 'guy groups' that reached the height of their popularity during the 1950s. This quartet of high-school chums, and their earnest dreams of recording an album, ended (symbolically, and even literally) in death, when their cherry red '54 Mercury collided with a bus filled with Catholic schoolgirls on their way to see the Beatles' American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. The girls were fine. The play begins with the wondrous and wondering Plaids returning from the afterlife for one final chance at musical glory. Written by Forever Plaid Productions

Very evocative of the era, with heart and respect.
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being of an age to remember the white "4 guys" singing groups of the 50's/early sixties (4 Aces; 4 Lads; 4 Coins; 4 Preps etc) I was looking forward to seeing the DVD film made of this long running musical playing in local theater stages/clubs the last 20 years. I was not disappointed. The singing was flawless in the typical "pop" sound of the groups innocent era.The guys played some of the stage mannerisms of the groups for laughs, but with respect. Seeing the montage of the typical "Ed Sullivan Show" of the era was worth the price alone.

The story line of the deceased "Four Plaids" seeking to finally play the show they were destined for (though the fame itself they would never get in the changing musical era) was bittersweet and you just can't help loving their naiveté and great voices. Very evocative of the era and I recommend it highly. This is fluff, but marvelous fluff.
