Come see "the girls"  Daphne (Eric Santagata) & Josephine(Gary Lynch) as they sweet talk Sugar (Colleen Hawks, center)

         

What's the best way for two unemployed male musicians to escape the Chicago mob? Dress up in drag and join an all-female band on a train headed for Miami, of course!
The Hit Musical, SUGAR is based on Billy Wilder's 1959 comic masterpiece; "Some Like It Hot," starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. Two musicians in 1920s Chicago are unwilling witnesses to a showdown between rival bootleggers and need to get out of town fast. The only jobs to be had are in an all-girl band conveniently headed for sunny Miami. Their problems aren't over by a longshot, though: both fall for the band's lead singer, Sugar Kane; one of them becomes the object of affection for an elderly millionaire - and then the Chicago mobsters show up.

OSCAR TIME!!

Don't miss the Oscars on Sunday! Our good friend, Maury Yeston, the composer/lyricist for NINE, was nominated for Best Original Song!  His haunting song, "Take It All", is sung by Luisa (Marion Cotillard), Guido Contini's wife in the film. It replaces the song  "Be On Your Own" which Luisa sings in the stage version. Both are equally impressive!  NINE, the movie, was also nominated for ART DIRECTION (John Myhre), SET DECORATION (Gordon Sim), COSTUME DESIGN (Colleen Atwood) and BEST ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE (Penelope Cruz).
Let's Cheer MAURY on & then come to see NINE,  the STAGE MUSICAL ....as it was ORIGINALLY CONCEIVED..in full splendor at WBT! Starring Robert Cuccioli & Glory Crampton. CHE MERAVIGLIA!
