Filled with dark humor, whisky and the wanton destruction of property, Sam Shephard's True West is a gritty character study that explores an encounter between two estranged brothers. Austin is a successful Hollywood screenwriter whose brother Lee is a violent and menacing drifter and small-time thief. Their separate lives come crashing together after a chance meeting at their mother's house. Lee forces himself onto one of Austin's writing projects and the two very different brothers gradually start to take on each other's roles. In what some consider Shepard's signature piece and masterwork, the two brothers battle for survival and their own salvation, but they might destroy each other (and their mom's house) before they find it.

“A real treat! Bring Mom, hell, bring the whole family!” —The New Yorker
Book by Stewart Ross
Directed by Stephen Hulsey
The enduring hit Forever Plaid is a musical-fantasy about the four young, eager members of a 1950s close-harmony boy band who, killed in a car crash on the way to their first big gig, are allowed to return from the afterlife for one night to perform the dream concert that never was, singing some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the ‘50s.
Since its off-Broadway premiere in 1990, Forever Plaid, written by Stuart Ross, has continued to be one of the most popular musicals worldwide, and is perfect for the whole family. The Costa Mesa Playhouse has assembled a fantastic cast of both Plaid veterans in Jason Holland (Sparky) and Jon Schoenherz (Jinx) as well as Plaid newbies Shawn Summerer (Smudge) and Diego Lee (Francis).
This is the 17th production of Forever Plaid for director Stephen Hulsey, who is also musical director. Having worked with some of the original Plaids as well as Las Vegas alumni, Stephen is re-staging the show using the original Vegas choreography.
