Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG
Original Broadway Version (1954)
THE PAJAMA GAME was awarded the 1955 Tony for Best Musical and over
half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical -
story is one of true timelessness.
Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but
peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
Williams, leader of
the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a
head when the workers strike for a 7 Ĺ cent pay increase, setting off
not only a
conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as
With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (DAMN
YANKEES), THE PAJAMA GAME is brimming with songs and dances that have
become musical theatre
standards, including "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway".
Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a
comic "dream ballet", it
is a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy. For solid, classic musical comedy, it's hard to beat THE PAJAMA GAME!
