Legendary screen star Tony Curtis headlines the new musical comedy, Some Like It Hot, as it launches its 50-city National Tour at Houston's brand-new 2,650 seat Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Based on the 1959 hit film of the same name, and re-conceived from a previous 1972 musical entitled Sugar, the show is set in 1929 and focuses on two musicians who witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and are forced to disguise themselves as "Josephine" and "Daphne," the homeliest members of an all-girl jazz band. Curtis, who starred as Joe ("Josephine") in the film, now appears as Osgood Fielding III, the millionaire pursuing "Daphne." Directed and choreographed by Dan Siretta, the show features a book by Peter Stone, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill.
