As this nostalgic musical begins, the members of a barbershop quartet are rehearsing their big finale while traveling on the road. They are hit broadside by a school bus full of teenage girls on their way to witness the Beatles make their television debut on the The Ed Sullivan Show. The youngsters are not injured, but all four musicians are killed instantly. Somehow, though, they manage post- humously to take the stage for one final gig. Great songs that you’re sure to know and love. “Screamingly funny and entirely enchanting.”
