"The immortal Gershwin score is done luscious justice."
The roaring 20s are back in a big way in a Broadway musical with all the glitz and glamour you’d expect in Nice Work If You Can Get It at the Imperial Theatre. Jimmy Winter is a millionaire playboy relaxing in his Long Island mansion, waiting to be married for the third -- or is it fourth? -- time to the self-obsessed modern dancer Eileen Evergreen. But things go awry when Billie Bendix and her crew of bootleggers store their booze in Winter’s basement without him knowing, forcing the thugs to pose as servants when Jimmy’s bride-to-be and future in-laws pay a visit. Hijinks definitely ensue during this wonderful and unlikely love story you can see for less with tickets from BestofNewYork.com.
The winner of two Tony Awards and nominated for several others, Nice Work If You Can Get It is a New York production that takes 15 of George and Ira Gershwin’s most recognizable tunes and puts them in a fresh song-and-dance spectacular. Two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers) and Jessie Mueller (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) headline a show with Michael McGrath and Judy Kaye, who won Tonys for Best Featured Actor and Actress in a Musical for their roles as Cookie McGee and Estonia Dulworth. Based on a book penned by two-time Tony winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis) with direction and choreography from three-time Tony winner Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes), this NYC show is pure Broadway magic.

Meanwhile adults will enjoy the love story and humming along with tunes like “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off” and “”Someone to Watch Over Me.” This is a chance to see a Broadway performance that captures the magic of the golden age of the Great White Way.
