Featured Reviews For Nice Work If You Can Get It


Nice Work If You Can Get It: Theater Review - Hollywood Reporter
Broderick is winningly paired with the luminous Kelli O’Hara (South Pacific), and the leads are backed by a string of top-notch character turns. Throw in 21 tunes from two of the preeminent practitioners of the American musical and you have a cocktail that should go down easily with Broadway nostalgists. It might also draw audiences seduced by the magic and glamour of Jazz Age entertainment in this year’s Oscar-winner The Artist.

Theater Review: Nice Work If You Can Get It Is De-Lovely - NY Magazine
As the perma-sozzled, dimwitted, oft-married heir Jimmy Winter, Broderick—having been delivered to his marks by the tide of Marshall’s choreography and staging—proceeds to nail his gags dead-on, make it tipsily through his big dance with his towboy bootlegger love-interest Billie Bendix (Kelli O’Hara), and warble George-and-Ira’s melodies with pleasant Muppetry. Who could ask for anything more?
