Two hack musicians witness a mafia murder and then get away from their pursuers by dressing up as women and joining an all-female travelling band.

Some Like It Hot on Broadway Background

The Broadway show version of the classic cross-dressing movie caper released in 1959. The movie was famous for being the vehicle for the acting talents of Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis.

Original Broadway Adaptation

An adaptation of the original 1959 movie opened on Broadway in 1972 under the show name “Sugar”. The traveling version of this show then toured across America in 2002, but with little critical and box office success.

2022 Version of the Show

This new version of the show is a whole different animal with new songs, story, dialog and of course a new set of actors. The production had previously announced a 2021 Broadway opening but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The brand-new musical comedy that is loosely based on the MGM film is also written by Tony Award-winner Matthew López. Amber Ruffin from the Amber Ruffin TV Show is also a co-writer on the new show.

What's Some Like It Hot Like?

Set in 1929 Chicago, it is tough times on the street when two Chicago hack musicians witness a mafia massacre and then face their own mortality.

The duo want to get out of town as quickly as possible, so they cannot be permanently silenced by their mob for their first-hand witness of the terrible crime. They take the first gig out of town which is for a saxophone and bass player in an all-girl band heading to Florida on the train.

This new job means that the duo will have to impersonate women for the trip, so their cover will not be blown. Love, romance and high jinx abound on the trip and a unfortunate coincidence means that the pair are caught in some hilarious circumstances.
