Waaaay back in Sept '10, we heard that Matthew Broderick was in talks to star in a new production of Gershwin's Nice Work If You Can Get It.
Now, we've learned that he will, in fact, be starring in the musical when it hits Broadway next Spring.
We LOVED him in The Producers, and it'll be kind of hard for us to see him on the stage without Nathan Lane, but it'll be nice to see him doing theatre again!
And hey, maybe they can find a role for Nathan in this musical too! Then we'd be REALLY happy! Ha!
Are U excited for Matthew Broderick to return to Broadway?
