Nice Work If You Can Get It offers songs by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Memphis writer Joe DiPietro. The show focuses on Billie Bendix (O’Hara), a hardcore bootlegger who becomes quick friends with rich playboy Jimmy Winter (Broderick) on the weekend he’s to be married. That meeting creates great comic situations and a plot that includes fantastic twists and turns.
The Tony Award winning Kathleen Marshall directed and choreographed this slick, light musical comedy. Nice Work If You Can Get It sees two-time Tony winner Broderick play in his first musical since .The Producers. He and O’Hara are fantastic together. This comic romp, with music and lyrics by two of Broadway’s greatest, is a great experience.
