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.”
Raue Center For The Arts
When it originally opened in 1929, the Raue Center For The Arts was dubbed "El Tovar," though no one knew what that meant—it was jut a term overheard by one of the venue's founders on a trip to the west coast. Regardless of its meaning (or lack of one), the name seemed to accurately define the theater's elegance, from the star-filled sky of its ceiling to the facades of Spanish buildings lining its walls.
El Tovar drifted into deterioration over the years, undergoing several different monikers as it switched from owner to owner. Luckily, a generous bequest from Crystal Lake resident Lucile Raue led to a much-needed restoration. A two-year renovation left the theater looking as glamorous as it did when it was El Tovar—seats were reupholstered, and every android usher received an oil change.
