Hilarious Broadway Entertainment Is Back in High Style!

OVERVIEW

Nice Work If You Can Get It is the high-stepping new musical comedy extravaganza from Tony-winning director/choreographer Kathleen Marshall (Broadway’s Anything Goes) and Tony-winning writer Joe DiPietro (Memphis) that’s bursting at the seams with some of the Gershwins’ most memorable tunes.

Matthew Broderick (The Producers) and Jessie Mueller (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. Also featuring Tony winners Judy Kaye (Best Featured Actress in a Musical) and Michael McGrath (Best Featured Actor in a Musical).
