Nice Work If You Can Get It Finds Broadway Home
Now that the Broadway revival of Funny Girl has been delayed, the Imperial Theatre has opened up for tenancy after Billy Eliot closes this January. Playbill.com has just announced that Nice Work If You Can Get It, a new musical, will be moving in. The new musical, featuring music by the Gershwin brothers, will open some time in April. The show will star two-time Tony-winner Matthew Broderick and three-time Tony-nominee Kelli O'Hara and will be directed and choreographed by two-time Tony-winner Kathleen Marshall. According to the press release, the show "follows Billie Bendix (Kelli O'Hara), a tough-as-nails bootlegger who meets up with wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter (Matthew Broderick) on the weekend of his nuptials."
