Who Knew a Workplace Romance Could be So Much Fun…
July 15th – August 1st – Thursday – Sunday, 8 p.m.
The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic comedy from the creators of “Damn Yankees.” 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 7½-cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well. This show is a hit parade of irresistible songs including “Hey There”, “Hernando’s Hideaway”, and “Steam Heat.” If you missed the recent Broadway revival with Harry Connick, Jr., now’s your chance to see this tuneful 50’s classic!
