Event Details
Pins and Needles was a Broadway phenomenon, the longest-running show of its time and the only hit musical ever produced by a labor union. It was developed by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union in 1937, originally as amateur entertainment for and by their members.  It became an unexpected and huge success with the cast eventually leaving their factory jobs and becoming part of Broadway history.  Four singers and a jazz trio will bring you through the history of the show, sharing songs and skits from the original production. This 90-minute, one-act musical revue is performed with no intermission. Every performance is "Pay What You Can" with online ticketing in $5 increments.  The show runs for two weekends - Thursday through Sunday - at Howard Conn Fine Arts Center in Minneapolis.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows start at 7:30 pm and the Sunday matinee starts at 2:30 pm.
