More about The Pajama Game...

The Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival of 2006, The Pajama Game comes to TPAC’s Jackson Hall Feb.17-22, for eight performances. Hot on the heels of the recent Broadway smash, you can see this nationally touring musical that has had audiences laughing in the aisles.

Bright and funny, this fast-paced, tale received two Tony Awards for the 2006 production, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Choreography. This show also has received seven Drama Desk Award nominations, as well as eight Outer Critics Circle Award nominations. The original 1954 production of The Pajama Game was the winner of three 1955 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Choreography and Featured Actress in a Musical.

“Our Broadway audiences love a good mixture of shows – including great revivals. The Pajama Game is a great musical comedy that was also made into a popular film,” said Kathleen O’Brien, TPAC’s president and chief executive officer. “The show is considered a Broadway standard and the plot continues to speak to American life as it always has, especially in the way it addresses relationships in the workplace."

Based on Richard Bissell’s novel, “7 ½ Cents,” The Pajama Game tells the story of Babe, a feisty employee representative who finds her match in the pajama shop superintendent, Sid. Overflowing with pajamas, love, singing and conflicts between the labor union and the management, the real story is the seven-and-a-half-cents-per-hour raise the pajama factory workers are demanding to keep their salaries comparable with other garment-worker’s pay.

Sid pushes both himself and the workers hard in order to prove himself to the owner, but a visit by the union grievances committee in the form of lovely-but-tough Babe brings out his soft, romantic side. Despite their love, Babe warns Sid that the turmoil between the union and the management will cause problems for them, too, and Sid has to juggle his job, his heart and his conscience to find a solution that will solve everything.

The Pajama Game was revived on Broadway in 1973 with Hal Linden, Barbara McNair, and Cab Calloway as Hines. The musical was revived again in 2006 starring Harry Connick Jr. and Kelli O’Hara which took Broadway by storm with a sold out, smash hit run, earning two Tony Award wins and nine nominations.

The creative team includes George Abbott (author/director), Richard Pike Bissell (author), and Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (music and lyrics). The original Broadway cast recording was produced by Columbia Records.

As part of a special promotion with the Pajama Program, a non-profit children’s charity, patrons will receive a $20 discount on a pair of tickets when they bring one new set of children’s pajamas (any size, for newborn to age 17) and/or a new children’s book if they purchase their tickets at a TPAC box office.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
