The Pajama Game
A labor dispute by the workers of the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is the theme of this highly entertaining musical comedy. The story unfolds at a rollicking pace, accompanied by an exhilarating score including such hits as ‘Hernando’s Hideaway’, ‘Hey There’ and ‘Steam Heat’.
The Pajama Game which opened on Broadway on 13 May 1954, received unanimous rave reviews and ran for two standing-room-only seasons. New York Herald Tribune – ‘Broadway looks well in pajamas. This bright, brassy and jubilantly sassy show is the best musical of the season’.
The Pajama Game is a true American classic whose masterful blend of memorable melodies and light hearted romance has earned it enduring popularity with audiences.
