Forever Plaid / The Taffetas
FOREVER PLAID is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950′s 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.
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 1950′s.
THE TAFFETAS is set in 1950-something, and these four singing sisters from Muncie, Indiana are making their national television debut on the Dumont Television Network’s Spotlight on Music!
THE TAFFETAS pays tribute to the sounds of The McGuire Sisters, The Fontane Sisters and The Chordettes. Opening Off-Broadway almost two years before Forever Plaid, THE TAFFETAS made nostalgia what it is today! Spend an hour and a half with Kaye, Peggy, Cheryl and Donna and their band, and remember what Sunday night television was like on your 12-inch black and white screen!
