The new Broadway musical Nice Work if You Can Get It will open at the Imperial Theatre in April, 2012. As previously reported, it will star Matthew Broderick and Kelli O'Hara, and be directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall.

The musical follows Billie Bendix (O'Hara), a tough-as-nails bootlegger who meets wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter (Matthew Broderick) on the weekend of his nuptials. It will feature a veritable hit parade of iconic George and Ira Gershwin songs as well as some unknown gems in their catalog, and a book by Joe DiPietro.

Additional cast, creative team, and production information will be announced at a later date.
