The DC LaborFest is sponsoring a special Labor Night performance of The Pajama Game, which just opened a run at Arena Stage. The December 13 show will include a post-show “Talk Back” session with the cast. The classic labor musical deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where workers' demands for a seven-and-a-half cent raise are going unheeded, which resonates with the ongoing Fight for $15 and the federal wage freeze. “Terrific Songs…Sassy Dancing…Wiseacre Humor…Knockout Score,” says The Washington Post.
