About this show

Featuring music and lyrics by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, and a book by Peter Stone, Sugar is based on Billy Wilder's 1959 comic masterpiece Some Like It Hot. Two musicians in 1920s Chicago are unwilling witnesses to a showdown between rival bootleggers and need to get out of town fast. The only jobs to be had are in an all-girl band conveniently headed for sunny Miami. Their problems aren't over by a longshot, though: both fall for the band's lead singer, Sugar Kane; one of them becomes the object of affection for an elderly millionaire - and then the Chicago mobsters show up. Memorable musical numbers include "Penniless Bums", "The Beauty That Drives Men Mad", "We Could Be Close", "Doin' It for Sugar", "What Do You Give (To a Man Who Has Everything?)", "Beautiful Through and Through" and "November Song".
