Styne & Merrill's SUGAR to Return to NYC This September at Feinstein's/54 Below

On Tuesday, September 5th, at 7pm and 9:30pm, Feinstein's/54 Below will be presenting Jule Styne, Bob Merrill, and Peter Stone's Tony nominated musical SUGAR.

Based on the classic film Some Like It Hot, starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe, SUGAR tells the story of two musicians who witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. To protect their endangered lives, they don wigs and dresses, join an all-female band, and try to stay one step ahead of the mob!

Robert W Schneider, of Behind the Curtain: Broadway's Living Legends, is directing and producing the concert.

Schneider said: "SUGAR holds a special place in my heart because it was one of the first cast recordings I ever purchased. The magnificent music of Jule Styne and the witty lyrics of Bob Merrill make this score truly magical. I am so happy that Feinstein's/54 Below is allowing audiences to get reacquainted with this wonderful show."

SUGAR will be music directed by Emily Marshall. Casting will be announced at a later date.

SUGAR opened at the Majestic Theatre on April 9th, 1972 and played over five hundred performances. It was directed and choreographed by Gower Champion and was produced by David Merrick. The original production starred Robert Morse, Tony Roberts, Elaine Joyce, Cyril Ritchard, and Sheila Smith. It was nominated for four Tony Awards and won a Drama Desk Award and Theatre World Award.

Songs from SUGAR include: "Penniless Bums," "The Beauty That Drives Men Mad," "November," "When You Meet A Man in Chicago," and "Sugar."

In addition to its score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, who also wrote the scores for Funny Girl and Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol, SUGAR features a book by Tony Award winner Peter Stone (1776).

Tickets, starting at $30, are now available. In addition to the ticket price, there is food and beverage minimum of $25.00. SUGAR tickets can be purchased at 54below.com. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
