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.
