Kelli O’Hara to Star Opposite Matthew Broderick in Broadway’s ‘Nice Work If You Can Get It’

Three-time Tony Award nominee Kelli O’Hara (South Pacific, The Pajama Game and The Light in the Piazza) will star opposite two-time Tony Award-winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Brighton Beach Memoirs) in the new musical comedy, Nice Work If You Can Get It

Directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award-winner Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes, The Pajama Game, Wonderful Town), the show is scheduled to open on Broadway this April.

The show centers on Billie Bendix (O’Hara), a tough-as-nails bootlegger who meets up with wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter (Broderick) on the weekend of his wedding.  With a book by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro (Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score for Memphis) and featuring songs from George and Ira Gershwin, the musical “is a new take on a classic 1920’s musical farce.”

“I am over the moon to get to work with the brilliant Kelli O’Hara again.  Kelli and Matthew starring together in a romantic screwball comedy and singing Gershwin songs is going to be a total blast!” said Kathleen Marshall.
