Because Singing's More Fun in PJs

It is 1950s America, and the workers at a pajama factory are getting anything but a good night sleep. They believe they deserve a seven and half cent pay rise. Their new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, does not. The result? Strike.

Leading this strike action is union rep, Babe Williams, who Sid just happens to think is, well, an absolute babe. They always say work and romance don't mix.

Based on a novel by Richard Pike Bissell, The Pajama Game is a fun frolicking musical comedy that first hit Broadway in 1954. It came to London's West End one year later, and although playing in New York again in 1973 and 2006, the UK has been without for over half a century. Until now.

Director, Richard Eyre has created a West End rival in a whole new production that is to be performed at Shaftesbury Theatre between 2nd May - 13th September. The Pajama Game's twenty-week run stars Joanna Riding as Babe, and Michael Xavier as Sid. Standard tickets range from 20-65, but premium tickets are also available.
