Roundabout Theatre Company presents the Broadway theatrical debut of Harry Connick, Jr. as he stars in a new production of the Tony® Award-winning Best Musical, The Pajama Game, directed and choreographed by Tony® Award winner Kathleen Marshall, as part of the Roundabout's 40th Anniversary Season.
The Pajama Game features a book by the legendary George Abbott & Richard Bissell based on Mr. Bissell's novel, 7 ½ Cents, and music and lyrics by Richard Adler & Jerry Ross. The book has been adapted for this production by Peter Ackerman. The musical features the classic songs "Hey There," "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway." It is set in the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory during a strenuous labor negotiation. At the musical's center is the simmering attraction between a handsome new manager and a lovely union representative. But their budding romance is threatened by the impending strike.
Following the final regular performance of The Pajama Game on June 11, there are five special benefit performances on June 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th at 7PM. Tickets range from $250-$2500. Proceeds benefit The Actors' Fund of America, The New Orleans Habitat Musicians' Village, and Roundabout Theatre Company's Education Programs & Musical Theatre Fund.
