some notes on Forever Plaid the Movie

Daniel Reichard (Frankie), Larry Raben (Sparky), Stan Chandler (Jinx) and David Engel (Smudge) surround director/creator Stuart Ross of Forever Plaid. The film premiered at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles on July 9 and was simulcast to theatres across the country. A live performance of never before heard selections by the group followed with special guest star Carol Channing joining in with "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" The boys retorted, "Carol is a Plaid's Best Friend". The new arrangements of "Memory" from Cats and "Sweeney Todd" (Don't be a weenie; get a cut from Sweeney!) were heavenly and Carol's cutesy shabooms were sheer delight!
Hopefully, the last 20 minutes of the film did not go out across country the way it came through on the big screen at Nokia. The picture went unpleasantly in and out and put a damper on an otherwise fun experience. The boys are terrific in the film. I can't wait for the DVD release in the fall!
