This Spotlight Night presentation will take you behind the scenes of the fun and fiesty musical The Pajama Game as it comes to The 5th Avenue stage in the new year. You’ll enjoy a lively discussion panel and musical clips in an evening hosted by David Armtrong, Artistic Director and Executive Producer.

ACT I: FROM THE JUKEBOX: Pop Songs and The Pajama Game
One of the reasons that The Pajama Game was such a popular musical in its day was because the songs were written in styles that people heard on the radio every day. Artistic Associate Albert Evans looks at the connection between Pajama Game songs and pop songs of the day.
