Claire Trevor Theatre

With its combination of classic score, engaging personal story, and meaningful political issues, this four-time Tony Award-winning musical is as resonant today as it was at its premiere nearly 65 years ago. At the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory handsome Sid Sorokin and feisty Union rep “Babe” Williams fall hard for each other, but when the pair finds themselves on opposite sides of a labor dispute, sparks really start to fly!

UCI Drama – 2018/19 Season

“Against All Odds”

History provides countless examples of individuals, communities, and nations facing desperate, unjust, and even seemingly impossible circumstances; yet somehow, time and again, they find the will and the means to overcome. These are the stories that make great theatre, and indeed, that keep us personally inspired and hopeful in difficult times. As citizens of this particular sociopolitical moment, when we are bombarded from every outlet to the brink of despondent apathy, we invite you to join us in living journeys of those who were faced with substantial adversity, but survived – and thrived – against all odds.
