York Theatre Company presents Plaid Tidings


York Theatre Company presents the New York premiere of the Holiday edition of "Forever Plaid" entitled Plaid Tidings at Saint Peter's this December. Previews begin on 8 December, before an official opening on 13 December and a limited engagement through to 27 December 2015.

Plaid Tidings features a book by Stuart Ross, along with vocal and musical arrangements by James Raitt, Brad Ellis, Raymond Berg & David Snyder. Direction and musical staging is by Stuart Ross, with musical continuity and supervision by David Snyder.

Synopsis: "For the first time in New York, our favorite foursome returns to put on yet another posthumous performance to bring harmony to our troubled world (they get to sing with Perry Como-on stage!), with a holiday special, Plaid Tidings. They are bringing back holiday classics with a Forever Plaid twist-such as 'Jingle Bells,' ''Twuz the Night B4.,' and 'The Dreidel Song' - while filling the night with general hilarity. Sprinkled among their holiday offerings are audience favorites like their riotous three-minute version of 'The Ed Sullivan Show' - this time featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks, and the Vienna Boys Choir - and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas which puts the 'Day-O' in 'Excelsis!'"

Casting of the four-member ensemble will be announced at a later date.
