About The Show:
Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 1/2 cent pay increase. This Tony award-winning musical features plenty of fun and splashy production numbers. This show is a glowing example of the best in classic musical comedy.
