Ahead of press night this evening (13 May), production photos and trailer have been released for The Pajama Game, currently playing at the Shaftesbury Theatre.

Michael Xavier and Joanna Riding star in Richard Eyre's production of the Broadway classic, which transfers to the West End for a limited season following a critically acclaimed, sold out run at Chichester Festival Theatre.

In 1950s America, love is in the air at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory as handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin (Xavier) falls head-over-heels for feisty Union rep Babe Williams (Riding). Sparks fly when the employees are refused a seven-and-a-half cents an hour raise, leaving Sid and Babe deliciously at odds as the temperature rises in this buoyantly blissful blend of romance and comedy. Will love, eventually, conquer all?
