DON'T WANT TO PLAY?
The score is full of classic Gershwin tunes. The brand new book, the choreography and the direction are all done by Tony winners. And the cast is chock full Tony nominees, Tony winners and even an Oscar winner! With credentials like that, the new Broadway musical comedy, Nice Work If You Can Get It, is bound to be a crowd-pleasing extravaganza!
HILARIOUS BROADWAY ENTERTAINMENT IS BACK IN HIGH STYLE!
Don’t miss the high-stepping new musical comedy extravaganza from Kathleen Marshall, the Tony®-winning director/choreographer of The Pajama Game who turned Anything Goes into last year’s most effervescent delight, and Joe DiPietro, Tony®-winning writer of Memphis.
Matthew Broderick (The Producers) and Kelli O'Hara (South Pacific) star in this sparkling tale of playboys, politicians, bootleggers and leggy chorus girls, all running loose in a glorious Long Island mansion in the rip-roaring 1920s. Let the fun begin!
