Some Like It Hot 

Do you remember Tony Randall, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe in the award-winning movie of the same name? No matter if you don’t. This is a must-see, very current update of the film about two musicians witness to a mob hit in gangster-infested Chicago. Forced to take on disguises as females to join an all-girl band led by the feisty Sweet Sue, Joe/Josephine and Jerry/Daphne travel cross-country where confusion reigns supreme as unexpected love interests intrude. Adrianna Hicks is superb as Sugar. Closing December 30.

Shubert Theatre,


Is it Hee Haw? Is it a Broadway musical? It’s both. Shucked is a hilarious and audacious farm-to-fable musical about the one thing Americans everywhere can’t get enough of: corn. Rapid-fire, raunchy dialogue, puns and songs keep this musical on its corny mission. Alex Newell, well-known as Unique on Glee, is a standout as Lulu, the diva who doesn’t kowtow to anyone. Closing January 14.

Gutenberg! The Musical

It’s a happy reunion of the two original stars of The Book of Mormon, Andrew Rannells and Josh Gad, in this spoof of musicals. The duo attempts writing a new musical about Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press. In the process they play every role and sing every song at an audition for the musical. It’s a light-hearted romp that will keep you laughing. Closing January 28.

Prayer for the French Republic

Returning after an extended, celebrated run at Manhattan Theatre Club in 2022, Prayer for the French Republic fluctuates between vignettes about a contemporary Jewish family facing antisemitism in France and their ancestors living in 1944 times. Closing February 18.
