Broadway's Some Like It Hot, which opened at the Shubert Theatre December 11, 2022, will digitally release a cast recording March 24, with a physical release to follow. The album, being released on the Concord Theatricals Recordings label, is set to be recorded later this month, produced by Scott M. Riesett and Marc Shaiman and co-produced by Charlie Rosen, Bryan Carter, and Mary-Mitchell Campbell.

Adapted from the 1959 film written and directed by Billy Wilder, the musical features a book by The Inheritance Tony winner Matthew López and Amber Ruffin and a score by Hairspray's Shaiman and Scott Wittman, with the former providing music and both contributing lyrics. Tony winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs. Read reviews for the show here.

Harrison Ghee as Jerry/Daphne, Adrianna Hicks as Sugar, Kevin Del Aguila as Osgood, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Sweet Sue, Adam Heller as Mulligan, and Mark Lotito as Spats. The Some Like It Hot ensemble includes Tia Altinay, TyNia René Brandon, DeMarius Copes, Casey Garvin, Devon Hadsell, Jenny Hill, K.J.

Inspired by the French film Fanfare of Love, Some Like It Hot follows two Prohibition-era jazz musicians in Chicago (played on screen by Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon), who witness a mob hit and go into hiding by disguising themselves as members of an all-female band. Through their escape plot, the two become enamored with the band's singer and ukulele player, Sugar, played on screen by Marilyn Monroe. The film was previously adapted for the stage as the 1972 musical Sugar (due for an Off-Broadway revival later this year), with a score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill and a book by Peter Stone.
