Seaward Properties is proud of its long association with the Chichester Festival Theatre and Festival 2013 has recently opened with the evergreen Broadway musical, The Pajama Game directed by Richard Eyre.
Love is in the air at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory as handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin falls head-over-heels for firebrand Union rep Babe Williams. But when the employees are refused a seven-and-a-half cents an hour raise, sparks fly and the couple find themselves deliciously at odds. Will love, eventually, conquer all in this delightful romantic comedy?
Having attended one of the first performances there is no doubt that the four and five star reviews in the national press are well-deserved. The production was great fun from start to finish. The set design is inspired and the intimate nature of the Minerva Theatre means that the audience really feels part of the action. The energy of the cast did not falter and the score contains some fabulous numbers. Definitely recommended.
