Watch Adrianna Hicks, J. Harrison Ghee, Christian Borle, More Perform SOME LIKE IT HOT Title Song
The recording studio must be scorched because this is fire! Check out the cast of Some Like It Hot performing the title song ahead of the musical’s premiere on Broadway later this year.
Some Like It Hot stars Christian Borle (Little Shop of Horrors) as Joe/Josephine, J. Harrison Ghee (Mrs. Doubtfire) as Jerry/Daphne, Adrianna Hicks (Six) as Sugar, Kevin Del Aguila (Frozen) as Osgood, and NaTasha Yvette Williams (Chicken & Biscuits) as Sweet Sue, all of whom appear in the video below.
Rounding out the cast are Adam Heller as Mulligan and Mark Lotito as Spats, with a full company to be announced soon. Previews are set to begin November 1 at the Shubert Theatre ahead of a December 11 opening.
The musical is based on the MGM Oscar-winning eponymous film. As previously announced, the adaptation features a book by Tony winner Matthew López (The Inheritance) and Amber Ruffin (of “Amber Says What?” fame), music by Marc Shaiman (Hairspray), lyrics by Scott Wittman (Catch Me If You Can) and Shaiman, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw (The Prom). Serving as lead producer is Neil Meron.
Set in Chicago amid Prohibition, the story follows two musicians forced to flee the Windy City after witnessing a mob hit. With gangsters hot on their heels, they go on the lamb as the newest members of a big band.
The production will feature sets by Scott Pask, costumes by Gregg Barnes, lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Brian Ronan, hair and wigs by Josh Marquette, make-up by Milagros Medina-Cerdiera, casting by Telsey & Co., orchestrations by Charlie Rosen and Bryan Carter, and dance and incidental music arrangements by Glen Kelly. Mary-Mitchell Campbell will serve as music supervisor, with Darryl Archibald as music director.
Some Like It Hot is co-produced by MGM on Stage, Roy Furman, Robert Greenblatt, James L. Nederlander and Kenny Leon. D. S. Moynihan is executive producer.
