Who'd have thought that a labour dispute could be such fun? The Pajama Game is a musical based on the novel 7-1/2 Cents by Richard Bissell. The story deals with labour troubles in a pajama (it's an American show, hence the "incorrect" spelling!) factory, where worker demands for a seven and a half cent raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the complaint committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.

The original Broadway production opened on May 13, 1954 and ran for 1,063 performances. It was revived in 1973, and again in 2006 by The Roundabout Theatre Company. The original production won a Tony for Best Musical, and the 2006 Broadway revival won a Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

There are a whole host of excellent songs including:

Steam Heat Hernando's Hideaway Hey There I'll Never Be Jealous Again

and many more!
