The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic comedy. 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 7½-cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labour, but a battle of the sexes as well.

This unconventional, fast-paced Broadway favourite is every bit the embodiment of legendary writer George Abbott at his very best. The energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross is brimming with songs which have become popular and musical theatre standards, among them “Hey There,” “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway”.

The Pajama Game is a solid, classic musical comedy with a sneaky social conscious. It’s a shout out to “power to the people” and especially the women who keep the wheels in motion.

Rating: Recommended for audiences 15 years +
