Where to buy tickets, dates

The American Film Institute’s greatest comedy of all time comes to Broadway.

A stage adaptation of “Some Like It Hot”, based on Billy Wilder’s classic 1959 Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe blockbuster gender-bending film, opens at the Shubert Theater on Friday, November 18.

Joining the cast as Joe/ Josephine, Jerry/Daphne and Sugar.

For the uninitiated, the raucous farce tells the story of two male musicians in the 1920s who witness a mob attack. In order to disappear, the couple flee the state in an all-female band, disguised as “Josephine” and “Daphne”.

Of course, hijinks follow.

Most excitingly, tickets are still available to see the show live.

At the time of publication, we found seating at Vivid Seats for just $78 before fees.

However, most shows have tickets starting at $80.

All prices are subject to fluctuations.

So if you want to see the updated classic comedy live, below we’ve got everything you need to know to catch Joe, Jerry, Sugar, Osgood and all your favorites.

“Some Like It Hot” Broadway program

The musical comedy Razzle Dazzle begins Friday, November 18 at 8 p.m

After that, the show will employ a somewhat unorthodox schedule for the first two weeks.

Rather than going dark on Mondays, Some Like It Hot will play at Shubert eight times a week, with Thursdays off.

In December, the show’s schedule is a bit everywhere.

However, once January rolls around, the production calendar will adjust to a more typical Tuesday-Sunday eight-show-a-week groove.

For those hoping to attend an earlier performance, most matinees are scheduled for Wednesday and Saturday at 2pm and Sunday at 3pm

A comprehensive calendar with all show dates, start times and links to buy tickets can be found here.

“Some Like It Hot” lasts about 2 hours and 30 minutes, including an intermission.

Cast and Creative Team of Some Like It Hot.

“Nobody’s Perfect,” but the cast and creative team of “Some Like It Hot” are pretty close.

Completing the cast are Kevin Del Aguila (“Law and Order: SVU”), Natasha Yvette Williams (“The Good Fight”) and Adam Heller (“The Sopranos”).

The book was written by Matthew López (author of the Tony Award-winning The Inheritance) and Amber Ruffin, host of Peacock’s The Amber Ruffin Show.

Music is provided by Marc Shaiman, who wrote the soundtracks for “Sleepless in Seattle”, “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut”, “When Harry Met Sally”, “Sister Act”, “Hocus Pocus” and many more.

Scott Wittman of Hairspray, Mary Poppins Returns and the musical in Disney+’s Hawkeye serves as the production’s lyricist.

Some Like It Hot is directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, who has previously directed Broadway films such as Aladdin, The Book of Mormon and Mean Girls.

“Some Like It Hot” 2022 update

While two men dressing in women’s clothing isn’t comedic fodder in 2022, there’s no need to worry. The cast and creative team have already recognized this hiccup and addressed it in the text.

“There’s not a lot on stage that resembles the original,” playwright Matthew López told Vogue. “I’m not interested in being a photocopier.”

His reinterpretation describes “the options women are given and the choices they must make regarding their options”.

“Let’s do it about people who don’t fit into society and what they do to survive,” he added. “It’s about rule breakers.”

In addition to the modern thematic changes, this new iteration also features new music, black actors who previously inhibited white roles, and a new time period for the characters to explore.

Also, “Some Like It Hot” is set more in the 1930s than the roaring 20s this time.

How to Watch or Stream Some Like It Hot

The comedy that made Marilyn Monroe a superstar is available to watch on Amazon Prime.

However, you have to shell out.

Amazon charges $3.99 for a 48-hour rental and $14.99 if you want to buy the classic.
