Tucson, AZ – March 29, 2018

TUCSON, AZ – The Pajama Game is a Tony Award–winning musical that tells the story of the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, where conditions are anything but tranquil.  Sparks fly between the new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and the leader of the union grievance committee, Babe Williams.  Their rocky relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 ½ cent pay increase, causing a conflict between labor and management, as well as a battle of the sexes. Jealousy, intrigue, knife-throwing and romance combine to impress and entertain audiences of all ages.

The Pajama Game has a romantic and joyful look and feel, but it’s really filled with heartache,” explains director Danny Gurwin.  “Not to say it’s sad, by any means.  It’s the pining for love, happiness, equality, and fair wages that gives the show such a beautiful timelessness and urgency.  And the music is some the best we have from the end of the Golden Age.  I hope audiences can enjoy the show and hum along, but still watch a young polka-dotted America fight for all of the things we still strive to find today.”
