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 ½ cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labour, but a battle of the sexes as well.
Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic "dream ballet," The Pajama Game is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.
The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway."
