Jammie Time

(5th Avenue Theatre)

THEATRE

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the 5th Avenue Theatre presents the romantic comedy musical, The Pajama Game based on the novel 7-1/2 Cents by Richard Bissell playing from February 10 to March 5, 2017.

Things are getting steamy at the Sleep-Tite Pajama factory where handsome new superintendent Sid Sorokin is falling hard for Babe Williams, the feisty firebrand heading the union grievance committee. But sparks really fly when the workers go on strike for a 7½-cent pay raise, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

The Richard Adler and Jerry Ross hit won three Tony Awards including Best Choreography and Best Musical. The swinging score and Bob Fosse-style dance numbers include “Hey There” and “There Once Was a Man.”

Tickets for The Pajama Game start at $29 and can be purchased online or by calling the box office at (206) 625-1900. The 5th Avenue Theatre is located at 1308 5th Ave., 98101
