The Pajama Game original Broadway production opened on May 13, 1954, and closed on November 24, 1956, after 1,063 performances. It was directed by George Abbott and Jerome Robbins and featured all original choreography by the then 27 year old Bob Fosse.
“Bob Fosse brings to his first job of choreography on Broadway a wealth of experience gained as a performer and as a stager of dances for musicals on the summer circuits.”
