PJs and Pay Raises (NYC)

News Story

Labor relations and a little bit of love happen at the pajama factory as Pace School of Performing Arts presents The Pajama Game on April 29–May 3 at the Schimmel.

Love may be blossoming between Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory superintendent Sid and Union rep Babe. But when the Sleep-Tite employees are denied a seven and a half cent per hour raise, each stand on opposite sides refusing to throw in the flannel. Will their budding love affair survive a factory labor strike and battle of the sexes? Check out Pace School of Performing Arts students as they take to the Schimmel stage for seven performances of The Pajama Game, winner of the 1955 Tony Award for Best Musical and Best Choreography (Bob Fosse). 

Directed by Pace School of Performing Arts Acting Lecturer JV Mercanti, who served as the casting director on the Broadway revivals of Romeo & Juliet with Orlando Bloom and Cyrano de Bergerac with Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garner, and starring Pace musical theater students Cory Jeacoma ’16 and Emily Rogers ’15 as Sid and Babe, The Pajama Game features well-known standards such as Hey There, I'm Not at All in Love, and Hernando's Hideaway, along with a stunning recreation of Fosse's classic number Steam Heat, a fresh, fun, and surprisingly contemporary look at the classic man versus woman dynamic.

Performances will be held on: 

Wednesday, April 29–Friday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, May 2 and 3 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $8 for Pace students, faculty, and staff, and $12 for the general public. To purchase tickets, click here
