Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful as sparks fly
between new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance
committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 ½ cent
pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle
of the sexes as well. Based on the novel “7 ½ Cents” by Dubuque’s own Richard Bissel, the
story of The Pajama Game traces its origin back to the old H. B. Glover Factory in Dubuque.
The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre
standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Witness a piece of local
history unfold on stage in the award winning 1955 Broadway Musical.
