The dangers of workplace romances are explored to both comic and dramatic effect in this revival of the 1954 Tony Award-winning musical. At the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, sparks fly between Sid Sorokin, the new factory superintendent, and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a pay increase, setting off a conflict between management and labor, not to mention a battle of the sexes. A true slice-of-'50s-era-life, the still-resonant storyline also boasts a timeless jazzy score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, featuring songs like "Steam Heat," "Hey There" and "Hernando's Hideaway." This ever-popular show won the Tony for Best Revival when it appeared on Broadway in 2006, starring Harry Connick, Jr. Learn More

This sweet, heartwarming family comedy concerns the efforts of a young man to break away from his New Jersey roots, even as his grandparents, Italian on both sides, attempt to get him settled down with “a nice girl” from the neighborhood. As he struggles to set out on his own, the young man learns a thing or two about his grandparents, himself and what family is really about.
