The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including ‘STEAM HEAT’ and ‘HERNANDO’S HIDEAWAY’.
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 labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
