Matthew Broderick is back on Broadway in this new romantic musical comedy set to the classic Gershwin songs

Closed 15 Jun 2013

Here’s a surefire recipe for a sparkling, spirited and totally intoxicating musical cocktail: Take two-time Tony Award® winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers) and three-time Tony® nominee Kelly O’Hara (South Pacific), give them a songbook of the greatest American standards ever sung, stir things up with a cast of bootleggers, chorus girls, playboys and politicians, set them loose in a glorious Long Island mansion in the rip-roaring 1920s - and let the fun begin.

Hilarious Broadway entertainment is back in high style with Nice Work if You Can Get It, the song-and-dance spectacular by two-time Tony® winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis), directed and choreographed by three-time Tony® winner Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes). Overflowing with 15 great songs, including “But Not For Me”, “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off”, “I’ve Got a Crush on You” and “Someone to Watch Over Me”, this brand-new Gershwin musical comedy combines laughter, romance and high-stepping musical magic.

Nice Work if You Can Get It: ‘S wonderful, ‘s marvelous, ‘s what you’ve got to see!
