See out 2021 and welcome a brighter 2022 with a joyous and colourful production of The Pajama Game. Superintendent Sid expects an honest day's work at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, while Babe and the other female machinists think they deserve a pay rise. A strike looks likely - and so does romance.
The original 1954 musical opened on Broadway during the McCarthy era, when its labour dispute story might have seemed more provocative. But the battle-of-the-sexes struggle of the downtrodden women in the workplace still resonates today. The sparky comedy remains fresh and catchy tunes add to the energy.
Director Jean Lacornerie manages a French translation of the book, while Raphaël Cottin handles new choreography and music director Gérard Lecointe sees to the songs, kept in English.
