A bright, brassy, and bouncy musical set at the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory in 1954, The Pajama Game follows an unlikely romance between the leader of the Union Grievance Committee, Babe, and new factory Superintendent, Sid. All the while, a fast and flirty secretary, Gladys, can’t seem to stay still long enough for the straight-laced, ever jealous Hines. Without doubt, audiences will awe at solid showstoppers like “There Once Was a Man,” “Hernando’s Hideaway,” and the infamous hit “Steam Heat.” Complete with candid comic timing, vibrant and vivacious voices, and explosive dance, Gallery’s Pajama Game is set to entertain in a way only the best Golden Age musicals can!
