The Pajama Game
Recommended for audiences ages 10 and up.
The language is very mild: a couple of “hells” (“Seven and a half cents doesn’t buy a helluva lot” goes one lyric) and “damns” (“This is a lot of damned nonsense!”), plus one vulgar expression (“I don’t have to take that crap from nobody!”).
Several of the lyrics contain sexual innuendos, but are not explicit (“I got a hot water bottle / But nothing I got’ll / Take the place of you”). Some dance moves (in “Steam Heat” and the tango “Hernando’s Hideaway”) are also mildly suggestive.
Intimacy between the characters is also implied rather than explicit: for instance, as they sing “Small Talk,” Sid tries to kiss Babe, who insists she must cook dinner. She discovers her aprons are in the wash, removes her dress, and puts on a pajama top over her slip. They kiss again and sink into a chair as the lights go down.
One character (“Prez”) is a married man who constantly flirts with his female co-workers, using the same lines on all of them; he is usually unsuccessful, although he is seen leaving the company picnic with Mae (who later dumps him when he leaves her to go home to his wife).
Characters are seen drinking beer at the company picnic, at a tavern, and during a union meeting. Hines has a drinking problem and arrives at the factory inebriated when he believes his girlfriend has been unfaithful.
Sid shoves a worker who is being deliberately slow. Another character (Hines) entertains his co-workers with a knife-throwing performance at a picnic and later throws knives at several characters while drunk and in a jealous rage (he misses). The knives are not actually thrown onstage (though they seem to be).
