The person who stole the show, however, was Carol Haney, dancer, choreographer and dance director as well as Broadway star who, sadly, died at the age of 39. Here is a wonderful clip of her and two others, performing Steam Heat, supposedly at the end of a union meeting. Bob Fosse's choreography is terrific.
Very interesting, that was a male choreography. Indeed I'd guess the third male dancer was ill and she stood in at short notice? Notice how she ducks the push along floor and kick-flip upright, but doesn't take attention from them.ReplyDelete

The rhymes in most of the songs in The Pajama Game are very ingenious. I noticed that when I was watching. Don't know about the third dancer. You may be right.ReplyDelete
My favourite rhyme remains;ReplyDelete

As Doris D and Howard K play stropsy bunnies in Calamity Jane
Calamity Jane is one of the truly great musicals in every way. The Pajama Game is not in that league, but it is very pleasant.ReplyDelete
