Broadway producers love a musical revival. Why create a new work when one can simply relaunch a classic show? But what’s a producer to do when all the good musicals have been taken? Introducing the un-revival, a medley of familiar tunes coupled with a great cast and gorgeous choreography. Take that to your investors!
Nice Work If You Can Get It is such an un-revival, a brand-new musical without a single new song. The musical comedy features fifteen of George and Ira Gershwin’s most famous songs with a new book inspired by material by Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse.
Suffice it to say that the plot is secondary to the music.
But what marvelous music! Hits such as “But Not for Me,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” and “I’ve Got a Crush on You.”
And what a talented cast! Two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick and three-time Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara.
A fun, fluffy show that will leave you humming all the way home!
