The production began performances on March 29th, 2012 and opened on Apr 24th, 2012. A national tour will be launched in the 2014-2015 season.

Producers Scott Landis, Roger Berlind, Sonia Friedman and Roy Furman said in a statement: “Nice Work If You Can Get It has been delighting audiences at the Imperial Theatre for over a year and we could not be more thrilled with the response it has received. All good things must come to an end, but we look forward to sharing this great show with audiences across the country with the launch of an upcoming national tour. We must recognize the invaluable contributions of our director/choreographer Kathleen Marshall, book writer Joe DiPietro, and the extraordinary cast and crew led by Matthew Broderick, Jessie Mueller and our original Billie Bendix, Kelli O’Hara. Nice Work… has proved, once again, that the music of George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin will live forever to delight audiences of all ages.”

Martin, Kaitlin Mesh, Shina Ann Morris, Adam Perry, Jeffrey Schecter, Jennifer Smith, Joey Sorge, Emily Tyra, Correy West.

The musical comedy features a veritable hit parade of iconic George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin songs as well as some unknown gems in their catalog, and a book by DiPietro. It’s the Roaring Twenties, and a cast of outrageous characters gather in New York to celebrate the wedding of a wealthy playboy (Broderick). But things don’t go as planned when the playboy meets a bubbly and feisty bootlegger (Mueller) who melts his heart.
