NORTH HILLS SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL - PITTSBURGH, PA
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
is brimming with songs and dances, which have become popular and
musical theatre standards (among them "Hey There," "Steam Heat" and
"Hernando's Hideaway") and features plenty of splashy, fun production
numbers, including a comic "dream ballet." For solid, classic musical
comedy, it's hard to beat THE PAJAMA GAME!
