The Pajama Game
A glorious tide of melody
Following a critically acclaimed, sold out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, Richard Eyre’s sensational production of the Broadway classic The Pajama Game will transfer to the West End for a limited season.
In 1950s America, love is in the air at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory as handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin (Michael Xavier) falls head-over-heels for feisty Union rep Babe Williams (Joanna Riding). Sparks fly when the employees are refused a seven-and-a-half cents an hour raise, leaving Sid and Babe deliciously at odds as the temperature rises in this buoyantly blissful blend of romance and comedy. Will love, eventually, conquer all?
The Pajama Game previewed at the Shaftesbury Theatre from the 2nd May 2014 and opened on 13th May 2014 for a limited West End run, ending on 13th September 2014.
