Some Like It Hot is an upcoming Broadway musical based on the film Some Like It Hot, with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman & Shaiman, and a book by Matthew López & Amber Ruffin. The musical, like the film, follows the story of jazz age musicians struggling during Prohibition. The Broadway engagement, directed by Casey Nicholaw, will feature Christian Borle, Kevin Del Aguila, J. Harrison Ghee, and Adrianna Hicks.
Set in Chicago when Prohibition has everyone thirsty for a little excitement, Some Like It Hot is the rollicking story of two musicians forced to flee the Windy City after witnessing a mob hit. With gangsters hot on their heels, they’re on the run as the newest members of the swingingest big band ever to cross the country. Can they hide in plain sight without completely losing themselves? Or will the mob, the truth, and maybe even love itself finally catch up to them?
The Broadway engagement will begin previews at the Shubert Theatre on November 1, 2022.
