SUGAR BABIES, a tribute to the burlesque era, was conceived by Ralph G. Allen and Harry Rigby and with music by Jimmy McHugh and lyrics by Dorothy Fields and Al Dubin. It opened on Broadway in 1979 with staging and choreography by Ernest Flatt, music direction by Glen Roven, scenic and costume design by Raoul Pene Du Bois, lighting by Gilbert Vaughn Hemsley, Jr., and vocal arrangements and lyrics by Arthur Malvin, with orchestrations by Dick Hyman.

The original Broadway cast starred Mickey Rooney in his Broadway debut, as well as Ann Miller, Scot Stewart, Tom Boyd, Peter Leeds, Jack Fletcher, Jimmy Matthews, Bob Williams, Sid Stone, Michael Davis and Ann Jillian.

The Broadway run was followed by a short 1980 US tour, which starred Carol Channing and Robert Morse. That same year, it was nominated for eight Tony Awards. Following a second US tour, SUGAR BABIES debuted on the West End in 1988.
