The Pajama Game is inspired by Richard Bissell’s novel 7 1/2 Cents. The musical features music and lyrics by Richard Alder and Jerry Ross and a book by George Abbott and Bissell. In the musical, a battle erupts when workers at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory demand a 7 1/2 cent pay increase. Matters are made worse when the head of the Union Grievance Committee falls in love with one of the company’s leaders, Sid Sorokin.

The show originally ran on Broadway from May 13, 1954 to November 24, 1956.
