The Pajama Game
by The Public Theater

Mar. 31 - Apr. 23

Set in 1953, The Pajama Game is a musical with favorite songs including "Hernando's Hideaway" and "Steam Heat.”  The production focuses on a garment workers' union in Iowa negotiating a raise for its members at the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory. New lovers find themselves on opposite sides of the labor dispute throughout the negotiations. As a strike looms, everyone is fighting passionately for what they believe in: in work and in love. Nearly seventy years after its debut, this production’s bold new approach takes a fresh look at the characters and the laughs and tells a story of organized labor that continues to shape our nation today.

Director Diana Wyenn adds more about her vision for the direction for the production: “Directing The Pajama Game, an older musical, for contemporary audiences is an exciting challenge. While culture has changed and evolved since its debut, we still have to protest for worker's rights and against sexism, misogyny, and racism. This is what makes re-investigating this musical theatre classic vital for me; offering up the fun of the original and uncovering with the team the ways we can highlight how society has progressed and where there is still significant room in our country for reflection and growth. We are looking forward to sharing this vibrant revival with San Antonio!”

Paige Berry, who portrayed the role of Gladys in the last production at the theater adds, “I am looking forward to re-visiting this role from a whole new and different perspective thanks to Diana’s vision. It will be a challenge, and I am excited to do the work!”

Buy your tickets now for this classic musical based on the post-world war novel 7 1/2 Cents by Richard Bissell, with a book by George Abbott and Richard Bissell, and music and lyrics by Jerry Ross and Richard Adler.
