Starring Ian Stenlake (Oklahoma!, Cabaret, Stingers) as Sid, Pippa Grandison (We Will Rock You) as Babe and Rachael Beck (Singin’ in the Rain) as Gladys.
Sparks fly when employees of the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory want a whopping seven-and-a half cent an hour pay increase and won’t take no for an answer. Babe Williams is the feisty leader of the union grievance committee and she may have found her match in shop superintendent, Sid Sorokin. Their stormy relationship comes to a head and sets off not only a conflict between management and staff, but a battle of the sexes as well.
Bright and brassy, this unconventional, fast-paced Broadway classic is brimming with songs and dances which have become popular, musical theatre standards. They include “Hey, There”, “Hernando’s Hideaway” and “Steam Heat”.
