New York Times Critics Pick

The Most Award-Winning Musical Of The Season!

A super-sized, all-out song-and-dance spectacular!

The New York Times

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 4 Tony Awards® (Best Actor, Best Costumes, Best Orchestrations, and Best Choreography), the Grammy Award® for Best Musical Theater Album 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 theater.
