Sherman, set the wayback machine to 40 years ago. We are headed back in time for a 90-minute dose of nostalgia called “8-Track: The Sounds of the ‘70s,” a benign little musical revue at the Plaza Theatre.
While it is unclear why one would want to return, however briefly, to the era of Vietnam, ostentatious outfits and the rise of disco, the Manalapan stage company has mounted a breezy show featuring the songs you probably have at the bottom of your record stack and the wardrobe from the back of your closet.
