“Its exuberance and spontaneity make the entire theater crackle with energy,” exclaims Variety. “Hilarious and exciting,” declares NY Magazine. “THE PAJAMA GAME jumps with joy,” proclaims USA Today.
The high-energy score of THE PAJAMA GAME, by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, brims with popular hits and musical theater standards such as “Hey There,” “Steam Heat” and the hilarious “Hernando’s Hideaway.”
Based on Richard Bissell’s novel, “7 1/2 Cents,” THE PAJAMA GAME tells the story of Babe, a feisty employee representative who finds her match in the pajama shop superintendent, Sid. Overflowing with pajamas, love, singing and conflicts between the labor union and the management, the real story is the seven-and-a-half-cents-per-hour raise the pajama factory workers are demanding to keep their salaries comparable with other garment-workers pay.
Sid pushes both himself and the workers hard in order to prove himself to the owner, but a visit by the union grievances committee in the form of lovely-but-tough Babe brings out his soft, romantic side. Despite their love, Babe warns Sid that the turmoil between the union and the management will cause problems for them too, and Sid has to juggle his job, his heart and his conscience to find a solution that will solve everything.
The Pajama Game is brought to Tulsa by Celebrity Attractions.
