Fresh Glory Productions presents The Watermill Theatre production of

SOME LIKE IT HOTTER

By Richard Hurford

Wed 15 May 2013 - Sat 27 Jul 2013

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.

Now that’s entertainment!

“A fabulous and intriguing trip back to the glamorous days of Hollywood” Banbury Guardian

“They have a real hit on their hands with this new fantasy musical comedy.” British Theatre Guide

“A fast moving, fantasy comedy. The dialogue is sparkling, the wisecracks are spot-on and the musical numbers just keep coming… a perfect evening’s theatre.” Hertfordshire Life

“Richard Hurford’s script is an excellent framework on which to hang the high-energy performances and some profound ideas.” Oxford Times
