Some Like It Hotter - Ashcroft Theatre, Croydon

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THE WATERMILL Theatre’s musical comedy, Some Like It Hotter, will visit the Ashcroft Theatre, Croydon (June 10 to June 15, 2013) as part of a UK tour.

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.

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?

Described as a fast moving, fantasy comedy, Some Like It Hotter 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.

Sarah Applewood reprises her role as Marilyn Monroe alongside Daniel Lloyd as Jack Lemon and Paul Matania as Tony Curtis.

They are joined by Patrick Bridgman, Sophie Byrne and Andrew Venning.

Presented by Fresh Glory Productions (Lilies on the Land, The Awkward Squad), Some Like It Hotter is directed by Karen Simpson, designed by Jane Linz Roberts and has musical direction by Neil MacDonald.
