The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic comedy from the creators of DAMN YANKEES. 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 and a half cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
Bright and brassy, this unconventional, fast-paced Broadway favorite is every bit the embodiment of legendary director George Abbott at his brimming with songs and dances which have become popular and musical theatre standards (among them "Hey There", "Steam Heat", and "Hernando's Hideaway") and features plenty of splashy, fun production numbers. For solid, classic musical comedy, it’s hard to beat THE PAJAMA GAME!.
