"Forever Plaid", Stage West, Toronto, ON

One of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory, this deliciously goofy revue centre on four young singers killed in a car crash in the 1950s on the way to their first 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 and executing their outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the "Plaids" are a guaranteed smash. With a program of beloved songs and patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they're not humming along with great nostalgic pop hits of the 50s.

This is the third time I've seen this over the years and I enjoyed this version. The voices harmonized really well and I like the old tunes.
