Big, bright and brassy musical brings "Steam Heat" to the stage

Arizona Theatre Company gets bright and brassy, sexy and sassy with the addition of a brand new revival of the classic Broadway musical The Pajama Game to its 2007-2008 season. The Pajama Game will be directed by ATC Artistic Director David Ira Goldstein, who has directed many of ATC’s biggest musical hits, along with the same creative team that delighted audiences with ATC’s previous sold-out hits My Fair Lady and The Pirates of Penzance. Running November 24 through December 15, 2007 in Tucson and December 31, 2007 through January 20, 2008 in Phoenix, The Pajama Game is underwritten by Bette and Gerry Zatuchni and SRP.�

In The Pajama Game, there’s unrest at the Sleep Tite pajama factory when Sid and Babe sit on opposite sides of the negotiating table clashing over a seven-and-a-half cent raise. But love threatens to shut down the plant as the battle of the sexes plays out in this rollicking classic of the Golden Age of musical comedy. The Pajama Game is a hit parade of irresistible songs including “Steam Heat,” “Hernando’s Hideaway” and “Hey There (You with the Stars in Your Eyes).” The Pajama Game, written by George Abbott and Richard Bissell with music and lyrics by Jerry Ross and Richard Adler, is a rambunctious pillow fight full of jazzy songs, hot dance and exuberant laughter.�

“The Pajama Game has always been one of my favorite classic American musicals,” said Artistic Director David Ira Goldstein in announcing the production. “With wonderfully appealing characters, a sexy love story, tons of laughs, dynamic dances and packed with great songs, we’ve been talking about doing Pajama Game for several years. It was a landmark when it first opened in 1954 and remains one of the giddiest peaks of musical comedy. With several of my artistic collaborators from previous ATC musicals coming along for the ride, we are delighted to add this high-spirited show to our 41st season.”��

ATC’s all-new production of The Pajama Game replaces the scheduled run of Mask. Due to unexpected scheduling issues with other projects for the creative team of Mask, that project cannot happen at this time.�
