“Screamingly funny! Entirely enchanting, utterly entertaining, awesome!…will put a smile on your face, a hum in your throat and a tap to your feet,” says the New York Post. The New York Times calls it, “Letter-perfect! Sweet, funny and thoroughly amusing.” Whatever you want to call it, you’ll enjoy it. One of today’s most popular and successful musicals, this quirky revue tells the story of four, young, eager male singers killed in the 1950s on the way to their first big gig. Miraculously, they are revived (aircon included) so they may posthumously perform the show that never was. Nostalgia lives as the “Plaids” sing such favorites as “Three Coins In the Fountain,” “Catch A Falling Star” and ” Love Is A Many Splendored Thing.” So hold on to your canolis as these crazy boys put on the best show of their lives…in their afterlives.
