The Pajama Game

February 9 - March 5, 2017

First performed in 1954, The Pajama Game takes a sideways glance at the labour concerns of American factory workers. This 5th Avenue Theatre revival is directed by Bill Berry. One of theater's brightest and breeziest musicals, The Pajama Game is stuffed with slapstick humor and a finger-clicking jazzy score. Among the best known numbers are Once-A-Year-Day and the sultry Steam Heat, which was the first ever Broadway number choreographed by the legendary Bob Fosse.

Murder For Two Poster

Murder For Two

March 25 - June 4, 2017

A tongue-in-cheek homage to the murder mystery as espoused by the works of Agatha Christie combined with a snappy old-school Broadway score, with a dash of famed comedy The 39 Steps. Murder For Two follows the investigation of a jaded police officer who hopes to gain his detective stripes by solving the murder of a famous crime novelist. However, he must contend with no less than 13 suspects - all played by one actor!

Also known simply as "The 5th", this large-scale theater plays host to the biggest Broadway touring shows, as well as staging their own top productions through their very own 5th Avenue Musical Theatre Company, which employs over 600. Some of these shows go onto Broadway afterwards. Opened in 1926, the interior of the building has a distinct Chinese influence; Norwegian architect Gustav Liljestrom took inspiration from various Beijing landmarks from his travels to the region, and incorporated these into the overall design.
