Turn up the heat with Some Like It Hot! The new Broadway musical, based on the iconic Marilyn Monroe film, brings new-fashioned comedy and old-fashioned jazz to the New York stage. Get Some Like It Hot tickets on TodayTix.
Some Like It Hot is the big, brassy, Broadway spectacle you’ve been waiting for – or as New York Theatre Guide hails it, “a bracing, fizzy cocktail garnished with a winning cast.” With Casey Nicholaw – director/choreographer of The Book of Mormon, Aladdin, and The Drowsy Chaperone – in charge, expect grand production numbers and plenty of energy set to Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman’s (Hairspray) big-band jazz score.
The Some Like It Hot film’s story, of two at-large musicians finding love and themselves while in disguise, was groundbreaking in 1959. This adaptation, by comedian Amber Ruffin and Tony-winning playwright Matthew López, brings a fresh message for today’s world about living your most authentic self, while keeping all the movie’s most iconic moments intact.

In Some Like It Hot, jazz musicians Joe and Jerry accidentally witness a mob hit and skip town with Sweet Sue's Society Syncopators, an all-female traveling swing band. They navigate romantic ups and downs, including with lead singer Sugar, but ultimately, Some Like It Hot is about Joe and Jerry discovering their truest identities.
The Some Like It Hot film was instantly buzzy, not just because it featured Marilyn Monroe as Sugar. The movie included cross-dressing and thus went against the Hays Code, which specified a set of taboo topics the media couldn't use at the time. But Some Like It Hot received six Oscar nominations and one win, jump-starting the movement to abolish the Hays Code. Some Like It Hot has since been called one of the greatest comedy films of all time and was one of the first 25 movies preserved in the United States National Film Registry.
Most shows have a pre-Broadway run elsewhere in the U.S. before landing in New York, but unlike Joe and Jerry, the Some Like It Hot musical hasn't traveled the country. The Broadway production is its world premiere, featuring two-time Tony winner Christian Borle.
