October 7 - 30, 2016

The 5th Avenue open their 2016/17 season in style with the Man of La Mancha, which hasn't graced their stage for two decades. Written by Dale Wasserman, this buoyant musical is inspired by Don Quixote, Cervantes' classic tale of the noble knight and his squire Sancho Panza, who travel the land righting wrongs and seeking adventure. The score, written by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion, includes the stirring 'The Impossible Dream', which has been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Roberta Flack.

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.

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!
