It doesn’t take a leap of faith to predict that Chichester might have another West End transfer on its hands this summer, as Richard Eyre directs this revival of classic feelgood musical The Pajama Game (now playing until 8 June 2013).

Starring Joanna Riding and Hadley Fraser, the Richard Adler and Jerry Ross musical The Pajama Game is set within the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, as handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin falls head-over-heels for firebrand Union rep Babe Williams.

With a medley of well known songs including Hey There (You With The Stars In Your Eyes), Hernando’s Hideaway and Steam Heat, and it’s unashamedly upbeat romance and comedy and should go down well with Chichester audiences.

It’s also great to see more of Hadley Fraser and Joanna Riding as the two leads, plus a well-known supporting cast that includes Jenna Boyd and Peter Polycarpou, alongside

Dan Burton, Ricardo Coke-Thomas, Amy Griffiths, Richard Jones, Claire Machin, Eugene McCoy, Jo Morris, Sophia Nomvete, Landi Oshinowo, Alexis Owen Hobbs, Carl Sanderson, John Stacey, Colin Stinton and Lauren Varnham.

Choreography is by the dance go-to man of the moment Stephen Mear (Kiss Me, Kate).
