WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Richard Eyre’s sensational production of the Broadway classic The Pajama Game will transfer to the West End for a limited season from 2 May following a critically acclaimed, sold out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, starring Olivier Award-winning Joanna Riding and Michael Xavier, and featuring Peter Polycarpou until 31 May and Gary Wilmot from 2 June.

A buoyantly blissful blend of romance and comedy, The Pajama Game’s golden age score includes the hit songs Hey There (You With The Stars In Your Eyes), Hernando’s Hideaway and Steam Heat.

In 1950s America, love is in the air at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory as handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin (Michael Xavier) falls head-over-heels for feisty Union rep Babe Williams (Joanna 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?
