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 - proving the 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 well.

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!
