In the historic Athens Theatre’s safely sanitized but cozy surroundings, nestle your family into an intimate little group to take in this year’s festive holiday offering at the Athens: Stuart Ross’s musical silliness, Plaid Tidings.
Inspired by the “heavenly” Rosemary Clooney, familiar goofily comic characters from Forever Plaid return to earth and transform today’s dissonance and discord into mellifluous harmonies—sounds and songs appropriate to a season of brotherhood and joy.
Chortle and hum along to their version of an Ed Sullivan variety show featuring The Chipmunks, The Vienna Boy’s Choir, and The Rockettes—all of it “Plaid” style–as we are entertained by amusingly altered favorites highlighted by “White Christmas,” “The Carol of the Belles,” “Twas the Nite B4,” “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” and a hilarious calypso tune with “in excelsis da-a-ay-o” serving as a refrain.
This is a show for holiday theater goers of all ages. Go to website to see additional days and showtimes.
