November 27, 1937 - The pro-labor musical revue, "Pins & Needles," opened on Broadway. It was produced by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union. The cast was made up of ILGWU workers. Because of their factory jobs, rehearsals had to be held at night and on weekends, and performances could only be set on Fridays and Saturdays. The musical featured such songs as "Sing Me a Song of Social Significance" and "It's Better With a Union Man."
