One of the greatest scores of Broadway’s Golden Age, THE PAJAMA GAME is full of immortal standards, plus a story that continues to resonate with audiences: workplace romance, clashes between management and labor, and the great middle-class struggle to do more than just get by. Add to that the early choreographic genius of Bob Fosse, and you’re in for an evening of love, laughter, and some of musical theatre’s greatest songs.

THE PAJAMA GAME runs about two hours twenty-five minutes, including one intermission.
