Judy Kaye in "Nice Work If You Can Get It"

    Nice Work if You Can Get It has been running at The Imperial Theatre in New York City since April of 2012 and will close on June 15th.

It's the Roaring Twenties, and a cast of outrageous characters gather in New York to celebrate the wedding of a wealthy playboy. Things don't go as planned, of course, when the playboy meets a feisty bootlegger who melts his heart. The show - with music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Joe DiPietro was directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall. The fun and colorful musical romp features Gershwin classics like "Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off," "‘S Wonderful," "Someone to Watch Over Me," and - naturally, "Nice Work If You Can Get It." The cast recording is available from Shout! Factory.

Michael McGrath and Judy Kaye both took home The American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards for featured performances in 2012 for their portrayals of Cookie McGee and Estonia Dulworth, respectively.

Judy Kaye has been a star of the theatre for over 40 years, previous Broadway credits include the original casts of The Phantom of the Opera and Mama Mia!, and Souvenir. She won her first Tony Award for Phantom. She has sung in concert, opera and cabaret and twice at the White House. She has recorded all of Sue Grafton's Alphabet Mystery Series for Random House Audio.
