HomeForever Plaid Brings Close Harmony Singing to the Big Screen

FathomEvents's picture

“Forever Plaid,” one of Off-Broadway’s most popular and critically acclaimed musicals is back (It’s grossed more than $300 million in its 20 year run). And, it’s bigger and better than ever on the big screen! On July 9, 2009, the Forever Plaid 20th Anniversary Special will debut on movie theater screens across the U.S. (395 to be exact). “Plaid fans” across the country will unite for the plaid celebration of a lifetime.
Since Forever Plaid is the ultimate tribute to the barbershop harmony art form that you seek to preserve, we thought the visitors to CASA might want to show their support by heading to their local movie theater on July 9 for the one night Forever Plaid 20th Anniversary Special event.
Presented by NCM Fathom and Forever Plaid Productions, this exclusive Forever Plaid 20th Anniversary Special event will feature:

  • Members of the original cast introducing the event LIVE from the red carpet at Los Angeles’ Club Nokia to your local movie theater
  • A specially taped 20th Anniversary performance of “Forever Plaid”
  • A LIVE performance by “The Plaids” – Daniel Reichard, David Engel, Larry Raben and Stan Chandler – of musical numbers never before staged during the play’s Off-Broadway run
  • The first-ever LIVE, coast-to-coast in-theater sing-a-long with “The Plaids”
