Music & Lyrics by Richard Adler & Jerry Ross
Book by George Abbott & Richard Bissell
Based on the novel 7 ½ Cents by Richard Bissell
Directed by Bill Berry

Things are getting steamy at the Sleep-Tite Pajama factory where handsome new superintendent Sid Sorokin is falling hard for Babe Williams, the feisty firebrand heading the union grievance committee. But sparks really fly when the workers go on strike for a 7½-cent pay raise, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well. The show that defined Fosse style with seductive dance numbers such as “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway,” this critically acclaimed musical won three Tony Awards® including Best Choreography and Best Musical. The swinging score includes the timeless hits “Hey There” and “There Once Was a Man” performed by a sensational Seattle cast. Don’t miss The Pajama Game as only The 5th can do it.

Some shows deal with mature themes and may not be appropriate for all children. For information about whether a particular show is suitable for your child, we strongly encourage you to read the Content Advisories for each production. Children under 4, including babes in arms, will not be admitted. 

Special thanks to the sponsors of our production.

The Pajama Game

Recommended for audiences ages 10 and up.

Adult Language:

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!”).

 

Sexual References:

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).

 

Alcohol/Drugs:

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.

 

Violence/Scariness:

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).
