Downtown Music Productions repeats its successful concert version of Harold Rome's 1937 witty satire PINS AND NEEDLES, music direction by Mimi Stern-Wolfe, stage direction by Jonathan Cerullo. With its critically acclaimed score and lyrics, PINS AND NEEDLES is a unique call for social justice and equity, with songs and skits that spoofed everything from Fascist European dictators to bigots in the DAR. Harold Rome went on to write WISH YOU WHERE HERE, FANNY, DESTRY RIDES AGAIN, and I CAN GET IT FOR YOU WHOLESALE. Show times are on Saturday October 27 at 10 pm and Sunday October 28 at 5:30 pm.
