This bubbling 1920s-era musical sparkles with extravagant dance numbers, glittering costumes and a delicious if not unlikely love story between a wealthy playboy and the feisty bootlegger who melts his heart. Set in the Prohibition era, Nice Work If You Can Get It features a snappy book by Tony Award winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis). This delicious, madcap tale combines laughter, romance and Broadway magic for an evening bursting with girls, gangsters, glamour and Gershwin songs. Nice Work features a treasure trove of George and Ira Gershwin’s most beloved, instantly recognizable tunes including Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, Someone to Watch Over Me, ‘S Wonderful and Fascinating Rhythm.
Rohan Browne (Singin’ in the Rain) is Jimmy Winter, a wealthy and handsome playboy. Esther Hannaford (King Kong, Hairspray) is Billie Bendix, the feisty but beautiful bootlegger who is on the run from the law and steals Jimmy’s heart. Christie Whelan-Browne is Jimmy’s fiancé Eileen Evergreen, the self-proclaimed finest interpreter of modern dance in the world.
Directed by Helpmann Award winner, Roger Hodgman (Show Boat, Grey Gardens) with Musical Director John Foreman (The Boy From Oz, Singin’ in the Rain) and Choreography by Dana Jolly (Show Boat, Grey Gardens).
