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 labour, but a battle of the sexes as well.

Bright and brassy, this unconventional, fast-paced Broadway favourite is every bit the embodiment of legendary director George Abbott at his very best. The energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross is brimming with songs and dances, which have become popular and musical theatre standards (among them "Hey There," "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway") and features plenty of splashy, fun production numbers, including a comic "dream ballet". A solid, classic musical comedy.
