Great acting, Riveting, Great staging, Great singing, Enchanting

See it if Pure perfection & my first 100% rating! Overall gem of a show & warranted the 13 Tony nominations. Borle, Ghee & Hicks stole the show!

"What 'Some Like It Hot' lacks in depth, though, it makes up for in shinier musical-theater pleasures. You’ll leave this show with a smile on your face...There’s a whole lot to like."

"Screen-to-stage adaptations are always tricky endeavors, and this one scores points for not just tracing the source but turning up some fresh ideas of its own...No one leaves thirsty."

December 11th, 2022

"Audiences looking for a sugary shot of old-fashioned Broadway hooch will probably find much to satisfy here, but for all the energy expended and the talent on display, 'Some Like It Hot' eventually begins to pall, all but numbing us to its charms by the relentlessness of its insistence upon them."

New York Daily News
December 11th, 2022

"And of all Shaiman’s wonderful past musical scores, this is the one that most celebrates the big band era...the harmonics are lush and Nicholaw’s grand dancers commit to every kinetic moment. The music, at least, is red hot and jumpin’."

Variety
December 11th, 2022

"This stage production boasts swell performances, dandy twists and turns, razzmatazz dancing and a whole lotta energy... If the songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman don’t always score high marks, well: Nobody’s perfect."
