About Some Like It Hot

Set in Chicago when Prohibition has everyone thirsty for a little excitement, Some Like It Hot is the "glorious, big, high-kicking" (AP) 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.

Entertainment Weekly calls Some Like It Hot “a 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.”

All aboard Broadway’s great big musical comedy!
