The production, which features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin, will open at the Broadway venue in April 2012.
Three-time Tony nominee Kelli O'Hara and two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick will co-star in the new musical comedy, which will be directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall.
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), Nice Work, according to press notes, "follows Billie Bendix (Kelli O'Hara), a tough-as-nails bootlegger who meets up with wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter (Matthew Broderick) on the weekend of his nuptials."
Featuring a hit parade of George and Ira Gershwin songs as well as some unknown gems in their catalog, Nice Work is a new take on a classic 1920’s musical farce.
The musical will be produced by Roger Berlind, Sonia Friedman, Roy Furman and Scott Landis.
Additional casting and creative team will be announced shortly.
