Overview

Based on 7 1/2 CENTS, Richard Bissell's novel of striking factory workers, 1954's THE PAJAMA GAME is representative of Broadway's maturation from the more frivolous subject matter of earlier decades, and it is one of the signature musicals of the 1950's. Composers Richard Adler and Jerry Ross fashioned both a fast-moving tale touching on social concerns of the day and a charming and tuneful love story. THE PAJAMA GAME features John Raitt, Janis Paige, Carol Haney, and Eddie Foy Jr. performing classics like "Steam Heat," "Hey There," "Hernando's Hideaway," and "I'm Not at All in Love." Not heard on this beguiling recording is Shirley MacLaine, who caused a sensation when she subbed for an ailing Haney and was discovered by Hollywood talent scouts, thus creating a Broadway legend.
