Some Like It Hotter is touring the UK and visiting Ipsiwch from May 21-25. Written by Richard Hurford (Pilot Theatre Company/Sheffield Theatres) it imagines a heavenly meeting between three Hollywood legends: Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis.
Welcome to the most surprising comeback in entertainment history.
It’s April 2013. Funny man Jack Lemmon and the incomparable Marilyn Monroe are reunited with Hollywood heart-throb Tony Curtis. But where exactly are they and what the hell is going on? This fast moving, fantasy comedy whisks the three screen icons back to their most beautiful, sexy and hilarious selves in a once-in-an-(after)-lifetime’s opportunity to rub shoulders with the stars.
Daring dialogue, razor-sharp wisecracks and sparkling musical numbers make a snappy musical comedy that looks wryly at the power of celebrities over the public – both in life and death.
Sarah Applewood reprises her role as Marilyn Monroe alongside Daniel Lloyd as Jack Lemmon and Paul Matania as Tony Curtis.
It’s not a remake of the film, Some Like It Hot.
Fresh Glory Productions presents The Watermill Theatre production and takes it on tour.
