“The Pajama Game” is a musical based on the novel “7 1/2 Cents” by Richard Bissell, featuring a score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. The story deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where worker demands for a 7 1/2 cent raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.
