The Pajama Game, 'The Unmissable Broadway Musical Comedy' Transfers To West End

The Pajama Game will transfer to the Shaftesbury Theatre for a strictly limited run from 1st May following its critically acclaimed, sold out run at Chichester Festival Theatre.

 
In 1950s America, love is in the air at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory as handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin falls head-over-heels for feisty Union rep Babe Williams. Sparks fly when the employees are refused a seven-and-a-half cents an hour pay rise, leaving Sid and Babe deliciously at odds as the temperature rises in this buoyantly blissful blend of romance and comedy.
 
Will love, eventually, conquer all?
 
Starring two-time Olivier winner Joanna Riding and Olivier nominee Michael Xavier, featuring Peter Polycarpou until 31 May and Gary Wilmot from 2 June. The show is directed by five-time Olivier winner Sir Richard Eyre.
 
Joanna Riding is currently starring in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Stephen Ward in the West End.
 
Micheal Xavier’s credits include Love Story, Into The Woods, My Fair Lady, The Phantom of The Opera, and The Sound of Music. The full cast is still to be announced.
 
This 'uplifting' revival features the classic songs including Hey There, Once-A-Year Day, Steam Heat Hernando's Hideaway, and There Once Was A Man.
 
‘Sizzling with hit songs and positive energy' Evening Standard
 
‘A romping, uplifting, funny, touching revival from Richard Eyre. Truly joyful dancing and fabulous big numbers' The Times
