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.
And what a trip it is! With its irresistible combination of heart and laughs, song and dance, Some Like It Hot won more theatre awards than any show this year, including the Grammy Award® for Best Musical Theater Album, four Tony Awards® (Best Actor, Best Costumes, Best Orchestrations and Best Choreography) and was named Best Musical by the Drama Desk, The Drama League and the Outer Critics Circle. No wonder Deadline calls it “a tap-dancing, razzle-dazzling embrace of everything you love about musical theatre.”
Run time: 2 hours, 30 minutes including one intermission.
