REVIEW: SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS

The BDT Stage presents
Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, they became “Forever Plaid.” On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins….Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter to keep you rolling in the aisles when not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.
Get your toes a-tappin’ and your hips a-shakin’ for a night of great nostalgic pop hits from the 1950s. The concert that never was features Sixteen Tons, Chain Gang, Three Coins in the Fountain, Perfidia, Cry, Catch a Falling Star, Day-O, Gotta Be This or That, Matilda, Heart and Soul – and more!

THE GREAT GATSBY: A RADIO PLAY
Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. Set against the glamour and excess of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tale of triumph and tragedy brilliantly captures the disillusionment of a society obsessed with wealth and status.
This radio play adaptation of the Great American Novel captures Gatsby’s tragic pursuit of his impossible dream with original music and sound design by Zachary Andrews, performed by Andrews and Sydnee Fullmer.
