"Forever Plaid," one of Off-Broadway’s most popular and critically acclaimed musicals returned for only one night, not to the stage, but to the big screen!

A Plaid Peek-A-Boo

NCM Fathom and Forever Plaid Productions partnered to present a hilarious and irresistible event featuring a live red carpet appearance and introduction by the original cast with special celebrity guests followed by a pre-taped 20th Anniversary performance of the musical, "Forever Plaid," starring members of the original Off-Broadway cast.

The exclusive event concluded with a live performance by “The Plaids” who performed numbers never before sung in the show, a mix of “swinging standards” and contemporary songs which “The Plaids” “swung” in their close harmony style, including a few strikingly original medleys of the old and the new. Two chart topping musical questions collided as “How Much is That Doggy in the Window?” met “Who Let the Dogs Out?” Carol Channing joined The Plaids along with tens of thousands across North America for a historical first ever live in-theater bouncing ball sing-a-long where live four-part harmony was created in nearly 500 theatres!
