The Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory is a tip-top model of efficiency – so why are things getting so steamy? It could have something to do with how hard new superintendent Sid Sorokin has fallen for Babe Williams, the troublemaking head of the union grievance committee. Sparks really start to fly when a workers’ strike pits management against labor and ignites an outrageous battle of the sexes. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (Damn Yankees), The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Warm up your early spring with this Tony Award-winning, fun and fiery, romantic comedy.
Cathy Goode and Louis Kaplan are delightful, casual but extremely gifted musicians who have vast experience with bluegrass and Celtic music well as with other forms of folk music. They are both teachers and explain both the music and their instruments happily and clearly. They perform and teach in various festivals both in the US and in Ireland.
