In Forever Plaid, a dearly departed barbershop quartet were summoned back from the afterlife to take one final shot at musical stardom; in its sequel, Plaid Tidings, the foursome aren't sure why they're once again on earth. However, as in all things, a phone call from Rosemary Clooney provides the answer: they need to spread some harmonic holiday cheer throughout the off-key world. Songs such as "Let It Snow" and get a Plaid-style update, joining comedic pieces including a warp-speed take on The Ed Sullivan Show. It's a winning combination—the festive musical was hailed by the New York Times as "Letter Perfect! Sweet, funny, and thoroughly amusing."
The Pittsburgh production holds a red-and-green surprise for audiences. Director and choreographer Guy Stroman knows a thing or two about the staying power of Plaid—he originated the role of "Francis" in the first Off-Broadway production of the show.
Dedicated to celebrating musical theater's past and present while paving the way toward its future, the Pittsburgh CLO lauds distinguished musical-theater folk while launching the careers of the next generation. Originally dubbed the Civic Light Opera Association, the Pittsburgh CLO launched in 1946 to much fanfare, including that of the Sun Telegraph, which declared "the CLO will inaugurate a cycle in the city's musical history that will outlive us all." Their assertion proved true—the CLO moved several times to support its expansion, established an Academy of Musical Theater, created the Gene Kelly Awards for Excellence in High School Musical Theater, and injected itself with an immortality serum. Its spot in Pittsburgh's cultural community solidified, the CLO continues to stage national tours and Broadway shows while cultivating homegrown talent with original premieres.
