THE PAJAMA GAME Book by George Abbott and Richard Bissell Music & Lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross Directed by Rob Gretta
THE PAJAMA GAME won the 1955 Tony award for Best Musical. More than 50 years later, it won the 2006 Tony for Best Revival of a Musical, proving the enduring, timeless appeal of this classic Broadway musical.
Set in 1954 in a pajama factory in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the story follows the journey of Babe Williams and Sid Sorokin, two employees in the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory. Babe, the head of the union’s grievance committee, and Sid, the factory’s new foreman, must negotiate a labor dispute and a burgeoning romantic relationship at the same time.
Add to this the antics of other wacky characters and some beautiful, fun, and timeless music, and you have a musical that presents a serious message about worker’s rights and corporate greed while never forgetting to entertain.
Among the many great songs and dance music, The Pajama Game lays claim to such classics as “Steam Heat,” “Hey There,” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.”
