Sugar is a 1972 Broadway musical based on the screenplay for the film Some Like it Hot, which was written by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond and based on a story by Robert Thoeren. The script was written by Peter Stone, the music was by Jule Styne, and the lyrics were by Bob Merrill. It starred Robert Morse and Tony Roberts as Jerry and Joe, the two out-of-work musicians who witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and disguise themselves as women in an all-female band to avoid being killed by pursuing gangsters, and Elaine Joyce as the title character, a member of the band who Joe falls in love with. Also in the show were Cyril Ritchard as Osgood Fielding, Jr., a wealthy older man who becomes attracted to Jerry in drag, and Sheila Smith as the leader of the all-girl band.
The original production was directed and choreographed by Gower Champion and produced by David Merrick. It opened on Broadway on April 9, 1972, at the Majestic Theatre, and ran for 505 performances. It was nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Choreography in a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, and Best Actor in a Musical for Morse, but it did not win any of them. Morse did receive the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Performance, and Elaine Joyce received a Theatre World Award for her performance.
The West End production opened at the Prince Edward Theatre on March 19, 1992 and closed on June 20, 1992, and starred Tommy Steele. The show retained the title Some Like it Hot.
