Tales of workplace woes are, perhaps, a common complaint in today’s society. Salary raises are a thing of the past, and the struggle of gender pay equality persists. In a timely fashion, the Tony Award-winning musical The Pajama Game comes to Tamarac Theatre of Performing Arts, opening Saturday. The comedy-drama, based on Richard Bissell’s book 7 1/2 Cents, concerns the lives of the workers in Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory. They go on strike, argue for wage raises, and, as a dramatic effect, certain workers discover that romance at work is ultimately a headache. Where there is conflict, comic relief soothes their souls.
Performances are 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through November 4 at Tamarac Theatre of Performing Arts, 7143 NW 88th Ave. in Tamarac. Tickets cost $25. Call 954-726-7898, or visit ttopa.org.
Saturdays, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Oct. 13. Continues through Nov. 4, 2012
