Forever Plaid

2 and 7 p.m.
It’s the ’60s and a crooner boy band—The Plaids—are on their way to their first big show. However, fate has a strange way of intervening when a school bus full of Catholic school girls on their way to see the Beatles crashes into The Plaids’ roadster, killing the group and sending them on a one way trip to the Big Gig Upstairs. In Forever Plaid, now playing at Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Stackner Cabaret, the foursome gets a second chance, in 2013, to finally play that missed show, sharing classic songs done up right with full throttle harmonies and a storyline filled with a charming innocence of times long gone. The Plaidsters—Sparky (Adam Estes), Jinx (Paul Helm), Frankie (Nate Lewellyn) and Smudge (Anand Nagraj)—mix strong vocals with comical interludes, including their “3-minute-41-second” version of all the acts that appeared on the Ed Sullivan show and their post-pubescent nervousness around the very attractive (and talented) pianist portrayed by Colleen Schmitt.
