Emerging through rolling fog out of a giant, neon-lit Wurlitzer jukebox and draped above by a curtain of hundreds of 45s, four men in white tux coats chant solemnly something sounding Latin and holy and strangely peppered with the word “plaid.” ...
As they move into a closely harmonized, ‘heavenly-sounding’ “Three Coins in a Fountain,” we and they know that South Bay Musical Theatre has scored a hit in producing Stuart Ross’s Forever Plaid, a 1990 off-Broadway hit that has since seen this final concert re-played thousands of times on stages large and small across the globe.
