I have a special place in my heart for crime-based comedies.

It’s a jazzy score!

Featuring a score by Marc Shaiman (Bette! Divine Madness) and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), a book by Matthew López (The Inheritance) and Amber Ruffin (The Amber Ruffin Show), and choreography and direction by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), SOME LIKE IT HOT is playing at the Shubert Theatre on the Great White Way.

Here’s a joyful look at the super-talented cast recording the original Broadway cast album.

It’s a jazzy performance!

This isn’t the first musical based on the 1959 movie starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe. The film, about two musicians who disguise themselves by dressing as women to escape from mafia gangsters—who they witnessed committing a crime—first came to Broadway in 1972 as Sugar. Robert Morse, Tony Roberts, and Elaine Joyce (as Sugar Cane) led the cast.

My favorite tune from the show: Robert Morse (as Daphne) and Elaine Joyce singing We Could Be Close.

The 76th Tony Awards are just a few weeks away. Here’s your printable ballot. Vote and play along.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
