'Pins and Needles' revival sings in Brooklyn with fresh take on classic New York living
The tenant-landlord relationship has always come with a high-tension hum.
Now, with rents in recovery (as in, going up), a revival sings of this timeless big-city issue plus others.
No, not "Rent."
It's a fresh take on "Pins & Needles," a 1937 Broadway revue that blends social protest and satire into a heady musical mix.
The show is a collaboration of the Foundry Theatre and Families United for Racial and Economic Equality (FUREE), Brooklyn-based community group largely comprised of women of color.
