The Delray Beach Playhouse welcomes spring with a brand-new production of The Pajama Game, one of Broadway’s most exciting new musical comedies. Based on the popular novel Seven-and-a-Half Cents, The Pajama Game is a fun-filled 1950’s “blue collar” musical set in The Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
The story begins when Sid Sorokin (Michael DeGrotta) is hired as the plant’s new superintendent, who soon finds himself in conflict with the Union Representative, Babe Williams (Jeanette Thompson). Sid has been hired to increase the factory’s productivity, while Babe’s agenda includes a 7 1⁄2 Cent raise. They soon find themselves falling hopelessly — and conveniently — in love.
The musical score includes such popular favorites as “Hey There,” “Steam Heat,” “Hernando’s Hideaway,” “There Once Was a Man” and the comic duet “I’ll Never Be Jealous Again.”
The show runs from March 29 through April 20, with evening shows Thursday through Saturday, and matinees Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $30 and are available at The Delray Beach Playhouse.
Reservations can be made by calling the Box Office at (561) 272-1281. Group Rates are available. Student tickets are half-price.
