Forever Plaid (SecondStory Repertory)

July 16, 2012


SecondStory Repertory closes out its thirteenth season with “Forever Plaid”, written by Stuart Ross and directed by Crystal Dawn Munkers. “Forever Plaid” is a distinctive and magical production, a mingling of music and drama with a healthy dose of a wistful flashback concert performance. It is a step back in time, an enjoyable revisiting for an evening the nostalgic and simple pleasure of the vocal harmony of the four part boy groups of the 50’s like the Four Aces, Four Coins, Four Freshmen, Four Lads, Four Preps, Hi-Lo's and Kirby Stone Four.

Forever Plaid” tells the story of just such a boy vocal band perched on the precipice of realizing the dream that they have been working towards ever since their fortuitous meeting in the high school audio visual club. Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie, individually flawed but together as The Plaids, bound by their mutual passion for music and entertaining, their potential was unlimited. The countless hours of rehearsing their music, choreographed moves and the continued strengthening of their enchanted four part harmony had finally paid off and they landed their first big gig at the Airport Hilton cocktail lounge, The Fusel Lounge.

The 39 Steps (SecondStory Repertory)

October 24, 2011


The SecondStory Repertory kicks off its fall season with The 39 Steps, a clever and fanciful fast paced comedic thriller adapted by Patrick Barlow from the John Buchan novel; though perhaps best known from the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock movie. Directed by Teresa Thuman, The 39 Steps stars Emily Cawley, Frank Lawler, James Lyle and Mark Waldstein who together aptly take on and meet the challenge of portraying over one hundred different characters throughout the play.
