Some Like It Hot

Broadway’s Great Big Musical Comedy!

Obviously a hit!”
– The New York Times

The Funniest Film in Hollywood History
Reborn as a Big Broadway Musical

Directed & Choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (Book of Mormon, The Prom, Mean Girls) this fast-paced, sassy, brassy cross-country romp based on the legendary Marilyn Monroe film is about two best friends running for their lives – and finding true love where they least expect it.

Set in Chicago when Prohibition has everyone thirsty for a little excitement, Some Like It Hot is the “glorious, big, high-kicking” (Associated Press) story of two musicians forced to flee the Windy City after witnessing a mob hit. With gangsters hot on their heels, they catch a cross-country train for the life-chasing, life-changing trip of a lifetime.

A Contemporary Twist on a Classic

Featuring a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), a book by Matthew López (The Inheritance) and Amber Ruffin (“The Amber Ruffin Show”), Some Like It Hot blends the screwball comedy of the original film with modern sensibility and invention in a uniquely new way.

Stellar Reviews

Entertainment Weekly calls Some Like It Hot “a booze-soaked boisterous good time from start to finish, boasting infectious music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman, a witty book by Matthew López and Amber Ruffin, and stellar direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw.”

Social acceptance is so important in every aspect of life and at it’s core that’s what this musical is about. Race/creed and sexual doesn’t matter just being yourself.
