Summer Place Theatre presents Sugar, the musical version of the classic movie Some Like It Hot. Book by Peter Stone, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill.
If you haven't seen the movie in a while, here's the scoop: Joe and Jerry are unfortunate witnesses of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago. To escape gangster Spats Palazzo, they hitch a ride to Florida disguised as members of a band--a female band. They seem to be in the clear, except Joe (or "Josephine") starts to fall for the band's lead singer Sugar Kane. Add to that a wealthy older gentleman who wants to whisk Jerry ("Daphne") away, and you've got a comedy that has delighted audiences for decades. The 1973 Tony Award-winning musical features tunes like "Penniless Bums," "Beautiful Through and Through," and, of course, "Sugar"!
