Our July 2016 musical is Nice Work If You Can Get It, a classic musical comedy set to a Gershwin score. Nice Work If You Can Get It opened on Broadway in March of 2012 starring Matthew Broderick and Kelli O’Hara. Tony Award winning author Joe DiPietro discussed his inspiration in writing the book for Nice Work If You Can Get It:
“I’ve always been a huge fan of screwball comedies of the ’20′s and ’30′s — the ones featuring bootleggers and playboys and dowagers and chorus girls. So when the Gershwin estate approached me about writing “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” I jumped at the chance and set about to put a modern twist on these classic comic archetypes. I suppose I wanted to recapture the past in all its toe-tapping glory while making today’s audiences laugh out loud in the process. I also wanted to make modern audiences hear the genius of the Gershwin’s in unexpected ways. So “Someone to Watch Over Me,” which is usually sung by a dewy-eyed ingénue, is now sung by a dewey-eyed ingénue dressed as a rum runner and brandishing a rifle. And as in all those golden-era shows, the boys do get the girls, but here the girls wind up with all of the power. “Nice Work If You Can Get It” is a new Gershwin musical about all the good things in life — music and laughter and falling in love. Every character in the show learns to find his or her joy, and I hope audiences do the same.”
