“It makes things seem as if it were still possible to glow in the exuberance of a brash, brassy, and ultraprofessional Broadway musical.” – Women’s Wear Daily

Based on the film Some Like It Hot, Sugar follows the zany antics of two male musicians of the Prohibition era who witness a gang slaying. Hoping to hide from the mob, Jerry and Joe disguise
themselves as “Daphne” and “Josephine” and join an all-female orchestra. Complications ensue when Joe falls for Sugar Kane, the group’s lead singer. Songs include “Penniless Bums,” “The Beauty That Drives Men Mad,” “We Could Be Close” and “Beautiful Through and Through.”

Royalty: Sugar is presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of TamsWitmark LLC:
