About The Pajama Game

The Pajama Game explores the dangers of a workplace romance to hysterical effect. 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 7.5-cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
  • Music and Lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross
  • Book by George Abbot and Richard Bissell
  • Directed by Laura Marie Duncan (B.F.A. '94, musical theater)
  • Musical Direction by Steven Ladd Jones
  • Conducted by Peter Mansfield
