Time Out says

There has already been a musical-theater adaptation of Billy Wilder's classic 1959 comedy Some Like It Hot (1972's Sugar), but as Broadway continues its love affair with guys in drag, this all-new show is taking another swing. Two-time Tony winner Christian Borle and J. Harrison Ghee (KinkyBoots) play the roles originated by Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon—a pair of male musicians who join an all-female band to flee gangsters on their tail—and Adrianna Hicks steps into Marilyn Monroe's high heels as girl singer Sugar Kane. The book is by Matthew López (The Inheritance) and the comedian Amber Ruffin; the score is by the Hairspray and Smash team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon) directs and choreographs.
