The York Theatre Company presents this musical revue by the creators of 'Forever Plaid', featuring 1950s boy band The Heavenly Plaids as they sing seasonal holiday music. More…
For the first time in New York, a 1950s doo-wop boy band called The Plaids put on a posthumous performance to bring harmony to our troubled world. They bring back holiday classics with a Forever Plaid twist— such as “Jingle Bells,” “’Twuz The Night B4…,” and “The Dreidel Song” while filling the night with comedy. Sprinkled among their holiday offerings are audience favorites like their riotous three-minute version of “The Ed Sullivan Show”—this time featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks, the Vienna Boys Choir, and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas.
See it if you don't mind mindless entertainment. Premise is an excuse for lots of singing by talented cast. This sh be an annual holiday tradition.
Don't see it if you want a real show. FP is a lively, silly romp. I had a great time.
Also I'm catching up on old reviews. In this case, a review of a revue.
See it if The singing was good, but the writing was embarrassingly corny, and the skits and banter were dated and unfunny. I left at intermission.
Don't see it if You expect a sharp, contemporary show or don't like music from the 50's and early 60's.
See it if u love the holiday season and the songs appropriate to Christmas, Hanukkah, and a few show tunes. The songs & the singers are delightful. Go
Don't see it if You don't like plaid? You're immune to fun, melody and laughter? Your mother died on Friday? You can't stand looking back w/ love. U dead?
See it if you love to have a good time! It's a time trip back to the 50s TV holiday specials. You'll walk out ready for every holiday this season!
Don't see it if you're a grinch. This is Perry Como, The Lettermen, a few dozen songs (a whole Ed Sullivan Show!), wrapped with a holiday bow. We loved it!
See it if You or your parents grew up w/the music of the late '50s-early '60s.You want a warm & fuzzy, non-ironic Christmas show.
Don't see it if You want a show w/more edge. You don't like nostalgia. You want more contemporary music. You hate Christmas shows.
See it if you just want to turn off your critic and put a smile on your face. Forever Plaid returns for Christmas - good harmony singing.
Don't see it if you dislike vocal harmony. I can feel delightfully silly and light but If you can't let go of your Grinch then don't go.
See it if you loved "Forever Plaid" & value excellent four part male harmony over anything else; you have the patience to sit through a LOONG 1st act
Don't see it if you have a low tolerance for bad writing and interminable set-up jokes for a weak story line
See it if you're looking for a fluffy musical. The show's entertainment value can't be denied and it's ability to provoke the holiday spirit is strong
Don't see it if you're looking for a show with substance. Though it does touch upon deeper feelings, the classic cheese of the quartet ultimately prevails.
See it if Great musical...has the feeling of 50's as well as Christmas...family show...must see for the holidays!!!
Don't see it if If you don't like musicals or revues
