The Pajama Game, a musical about strife and romance in a 1950s pajama factory, opened Nov. 1 in Collins Alumni Auditorium. Director Beki Baker said the show, which won a Tony Award in 1954, is a classic example of a Broadway musical. “It’s about as classic a Broadway style musical as they come,” she said. The theatre faculty chose this fall’s musical together, Baker explained, saying they decided to pick something that contrasts with what they’ve done in the past couple of years. “We’ve been doing more contemporary musicals the last few years, so we wanted to do something classic,” she said. “We have a lot of females in the department this year, so we thought this would be a good way to showcase them.” Baker, who has worked as an adjunct professor at Lipscomb for four years, said she enjoys working with college students because “they’re willing to work hard.”
“I really enjoy working with university students because I love seeing them learn and grow,” she said.
