The Long Center is kicking off its 2014-15 Broadway Season with 'Nice Work If You Can Get It,' one of two Broadway shows in the Long Center Presents Season that are brand new to Austin audiences!

'Elf The Musical' is also original to the Austin market. It runs November 28-30, and is on sale now as well.
'Nice Work If You Can Get It is staged in the Roaring Twenties... a cast of outrageous characters gather in New York to celebrate the wedding of wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter. But things don't go as planned when the playboy meets Billie Bendix, a bubbly and feisty bootlegger who melts his heart.
The champagne flows and the gin fizzes in this hilarious, Tony-winning musical comedy.
This brand-new musical features a treasure trove of George and Ira Gershwin's most beloved, instantly recognizable tunes set in a fresh and funny song-and-dance spectacular with a book by Tony winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis) and direction and choreography by three-time Tony winner Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes).
'Nice Work If You Can Get It' is filled to the brim with classic songs, including "But Not For Me," "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "I've Got a Crush on You" and "Someone to Watch Over Me." This sparkling, madcap tale combines laughter, romance and high-stepping Broadway magic for an evening bursting with girls, glamour and the glorious songs of Gershwin!
