Lipscomb Theatre presents
The Pajama Game
Book by George Abbott and Richard Bissell
Music and Lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross
Based on the novel "7 1/2 Cents" by Richard Bissell
The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic comedy (from the creators of "Damn Yankees"). 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-and-a-half cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
Bright and brassy, this unconventional, fast-paced Broadway favorite is every bit the embodiment of legendary director George Abbott at his very best. The energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross includes popular musical theatre standards "Hey There," "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway.” And who doesn’t love the Bob Fosse-inspired dance numbers? For solid, classic musical comedy, it's hard to beat "The Pajama Game."
