Perez Reviews: Nice Work If You Can Get It

A feelgood fun time! That's the best way to describe the crowd-pleasing new musical Nice Work If You Can Get It, starring the feelgood and crowd-pleasing Matthew Broderick!

The show is a new comedic piece based on songs from the Gershwins ample catalog, and it was skillfully written by Joe DiPietro.

Kathleen Marshall did a fine job in directing the show. Safe but satisfying!

Broderick did a superb job of playing an adult Ferris Bueller. And it was so fun to watch him having so much fun on stage. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for Kelli O'Hara, who is very talented but very miscast in her role as the female love interest.

Unfortunately, Sutton Foster was not available. SHE would have been perfect in that role!

O'Hara failed to bring a twinkle in her eye and a dazzle in her step. Instead of Nice Work, she would be much better suited to play Maria in a revival of The Sound Of Music!

Robyn Hurder, on the other hand, had a small role but made THE MOST of it and made us wish she played Broderick's main counterpart instead!

Judy Kaye and Michael McGrath were also great. But the real breakout star of the show and our favorite performance easily was Jennifer Laura Thompson, who was sooooo fun! She reminded us a lot of Kristin Chenoweth! It was no surprise, then, when we read in our Playbill that Thompson was the first to replace Cheno in Wicked on Broadway.

We have instantly fallen in love with Jennifer Laura Thompson! And we also are excited to see what Robyn Hurder does next!

Oh, and Sound Of Music with Kelli O'Hara is a really good idea, if we do say so ourselves! Ha

And The 2012 Tony Award Nominees Are…


Well, we think it's safe to say that three of these could sweep this entire year's ceremony!

The 2012 Tony Awards Nominations were announced this morning by Kristin Chenoweth and Jim Parsons, and on top of Bernadette Peters and Hugh Jackman receiving honorary awards - as we reported yesterday - it's clear that there are three big frontrunners this year, as the musical Once managed to garner 11 nods, with Nice Work If You Can Get It and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess following close behind with 10 each!

Holy shiz! That is seriously impressive!

We can't wait to see how they do when the ceremony airs on June 10th! How about U?!

Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominationsAFTER THE JUMP!

Broderick On Broadway! Matthew Returns To The Stage Next Spring!

Filed under: Broadway Babies

matthew broderick to return to broadway

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?

Broderick Back To Broadway?

Filed under: Broadway Babies


Is it bad that we only really like him when he is paired with Nathan Lane? Oh well!

Sources are reporting that Matthew Broderick is in talks to head back to the Great White Way. A new production of Gershwin's Nice Work If You Can Get It is going up and Matthew would be set to star.

Supposedly, their first choice was Harry Connick, Jr. Sucks for them that he fell through!
