Its 1950-something, and Kaye, Peggy, Cheryl and Donna, four singing sisters from Muncie, Indiana are making their national television singing debut. "Spotlight on Music," a fictitious weekly 1950s television show on the real-life Dumont Television Network, sets the framework for an evening of some of the greatest hits of the Fifties. A tribute to the girl groups of that era, THE TAFFETAS musical honors the sounds of The McGuire Sisters, The Fontaine Sisters and The Chordettes. Opening Off-Broadway almost two years before "Forever Plaid," THE TAFFETAS made nostalgia what it is today! Spending an hour and a half with THE TAFFETAS and their three piece band brings back the joy of Sunday night television on your 12-inch black and white screen but in live, full color.
