Assisi Courtyard

This fresh, fast-paced comedy, inspired by the Aristophanes play, follows Lysistrata, an Athenian housewife, who calls for the women of Greece to help end the Peloponnesian War. She proposes a radical plan: all Greek women must refuse to engage in love making until the men see reason, lay down their weapons, and come home to lay down with their wives in peace. Will Lysistrata and her crew accomplish what the politicians could not?

Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful as sparks fly between new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7½ cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

The Pajama Game earned the 1955 Tony Award for Best Musical and won another Tony for Best Revival in 2006. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (Damn Yankees), The Pajama Game features hit songs including Hey There, Hernando’s Hideaway, and Steam Heat, which have become toe-tapping musical theatre standards.

The Pajama Game is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

This modern riff on the 15th century morality play Everyman follows Everybody (chosen from amongst the cast by lottery at each performance) as they journey through life’s greatest mystery—the meaning of living. Written by Branden Jacobs Jenkins, who The New York Times calls “one of this country’s most original and illuminating writers,” Everybody was a finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize. The actors’ roles are decided by lottery before each show, with 120 possible casting variations, making it likely that the version of the show you see is unfolding for the very first time.
