Tickets on Sale for the Old Globe’s “Plaid Tidings – A Special Holiday Edition of Forever Plaid”
2010-11-05 · By Guest Blogger
Tickets are now available for The Old Globe Theatre‘s production of “Plaid Tidings – A Special Holiday Edition of Forever Plaid.” The production runs from Nov. 27 – Dec. 26, 2010, at the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre.
“Plaid Tidings” continues the story of the singing group whose lives were lost in an accident involving a busload of teens en route to see “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Encouraged by a heavenly phone call from Rosemary Clooney, the high-spirited boys of Forever Plaid – Frankie, Sparky, Jinx and Smudge – are transported from the ethereal cosmos to stage a nostalgic holiday extravaganza for world-weary mortals on Earth. Stuffed with such “Plaid-erized” Christmas standards as “Mr. Santa,” “Let It Snow” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” Plaid Tidings is one holiday treat that is truly heaven-sent.
Forever Plaid was presented at The Old Globe in the summer of 1991 and became the must-have ticket of the season. Directed by Ross, the show proved such a success that, due to overwhelming popular demand, the production returned for a second two-month engagement the following November. For years afterwards, the Globe’s costume facility created the show’s unique Plaid jackets for revivals of Forever Plaid across the United States.
Plaid Tidings is the hit holiday musical that offers the best of Forever Plaid tied up in a nifty package with a big Christmas bow on top!
