First Look Screening of Forever Plaid Film, with Live Performance
* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for Forever Plaid Film Screening and Benefit was Sunday May 17, 2009 / 7:30pm.
Musical Theatre West is honored to present a benefit “First Look” screening of the film version of Forever Plaid, starring original “Plaids” Stan Chandler, David Engel and Larry Raben, as well as Daniel Reichard, best known as one of the stars of the Broadway production of Jersey Boys. The event features a screening of the film preceded by dinner onstage (for holders of dinner tickets) at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center with the cast, a question and answer session following the screening with cast members and production staff including Forever Plaid creator Stuart Ross, and a dessert reception to cap off the evening.
The film version of Forever Plaid is based on the highly successful stage production of the same name, one of the most popular musicals in recent memory. This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950s 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 ’50s.
