Listen to Nice Work If You Can Get It (Original Broadway Cast Recording) now.

Joey Sorge plays the philandering heir so amiably that he has us rooting for 1-percenters born sucking on silver spoons. When we meet Jimmy, he's plastered in a speakeasy. It's the s, and Prohibition reigns. The occasion is a bachelor party for a three-time matrimonial loser.

He's about to wed an artiste -- the pretentious dancer-daughter Breighanna Minnema of a hypocritical politician Steve Brady. Jimmy's only doing it so his mother Leslie Alexander won't disinherit him. Just before a police raid, he runs into a girl bootlegger whom he kisses before passing out. When he arrives at his Long Island manse with his bride-to-be, Jimmy forgets that he told the tomboy-cute bootlegger about his beach house.

She and her partners in crime are stashing crates of booze in the cellar as the nuptial couple arrives. Sorge and Amanda Lea LaVergne as Billie the bootlegger sing and dance mating rituals to their unlikely pairing on such Gershwin masterpieces as the title tune, plus " 'S Wonderful" and "Someone to Watch Over Me" -- introduced by Billie as she aims her rifle. Their chemistry percolates in a way you can't direct, though Larry Raben should take credit for all other attributes -- high bipartisan zingers and low sexist leering -- of this irresistible musical throwback, accompanied by Charlie Reuter's jazzy orchestra.

James Beaman as Cookie, the bootlegging butler, initiates much of "Nice Work's" dopey-smart fun. From bah-dah-bum one-liners to pratfall antics, he plays farcical second fiddle only to Sally Struthers as Duchess Dulworth, a temperance zealot. Dead-drunk jokes usually leave me cold, but with Struthers literally swinging from a chandelier, only Carrie Nation would tsk-tsk. While you may find bigger dance numbers on Broadway, you'd be hard-pressed to find better. Accessorized by the late Martin Pakledinaz's Roaring '20s costumes and framed by Shoko Kambara's Gatsby-rich sets, it's nice work that you can get for a song.

Fans of Gershwin and guilty pleasures should not miss it. It has a zany and charming story, a beautiful Gershwin score, and the theatre is absolutely stunning. Most importantly, however, the cast is super-beyond talented. After all, many of them come from Broadway. Jimmy, Matthew Broderick's role from the Broadway production, is a millionaire playboy while Billie, Kelli O'Hara's role from the Broadway production, is a bootlegger.

In an effort to hide her stash, she uses Jimmy's basement to store the stolen goods. As predicted, they fall for each other, but not without some crazy twists and screwy characters along the way.

Great chemistry makes them a believable couple Also part of the stellar cast is the hilarious Sally Struthers who is portraying fervent prohibitionist Duchess Estonia Dulworth.

Struthers is absolutely thrilling in the role particularly in the hilarious luncheon scene of act two. The Duchess, unbeknownst to her, is given alcohol and let's just say makes a very funny drunk. This culminates with an extended applause from the enthusiastic audience. Everyone in the cast is truly remarkable.

Additionally, Peggy Hickey's chorography is fun and energetic and Martin Pakledinaz's costumes seem fitting for the late 's time period. And, of course, it is always delightful to see a terrific live band lead by Musical Director Charlie Reuter. It's fun, zany, full of laughs; everything a show should have.

This is certainly a production not to be missed. They meet in outside a Manhattan speakeasy, when Jimmy staggers out after a pre-wedding celebration his fourth. He tells Billie he has a Long Island beach house, expresses his affection and passes out. She muscles her role with perfectly timed inflections, over-the-top imperiousness and a voice that grabs you. His scenes with Struthers, wise-guy lower Manhattan versus insufferable Park Avenue, are fabulous comedic collaborations.

She takes a bath for four hours with two hand mirrors and a duo of rubber duckies while praising her beauty and accomplishments none, really. Six beautiful Bubble Girls in pink corsets and four Bubble Guys pop out of the tub in tights and swashbuckler shirts. The leads clearly get a kick out of each other when not sparring and LaVergne has a clear, lovely voice. What do bootlegging, tap dancing and Sally Struthers have in common?

Nice Work is a lighthearted, boisterous production with exhilarating tap dance numbers and a plot that, while predictable, is a treat for the senses to watch unfold before you.

Although many theatergoers will be drawn in by the amazing Struthers, who is top-notch, of course, many will also be blown away by the spectacular talents of the captivating leads. Joey Sorge as the dashingly handsome Jimmy Winter is captivating. This smooth crooner had me melting—especially when he sang falsetto. Sorge is romantic and utterly charming as Jimmy, a wealthy playboy who has never worked a day in his life but is on to his third—or fourth?

Lavergne has a powerful voice that is perfect for this role. Billie is no delicate flower, and Lavergne is charming as the uncoordinated, boyish and tough Billie. Billie is a bootlegger, and she and her pals Cookie and Duke are working that night, trying to find a place to store the cases of rum they have stowed away on their ship.

Billie discovers that Jimmy has a large beach house on Long Island, and decides that will be the perfect place for her and her bootlegging friends to hide their hooch. Jimmy is completely smitten with the adorable Billie, and the two are on track and falling hard for each other. Struthers plays Duchess Estonia Dulworth and she is as entertaining as one could hope. Her deadpan expressions and dry wit had the audience hooting with laughter.

She and Cookie, played by a very funny James Beaman, have a crackling chemistry together and play off of each other delightfully.

Minnema plays the high-pitched part perfectly. All in all, Nice Work is a solid musical that demonstrates the power of lyrics in its music. Order for Please Log In. Your shopping cart is empty. Shopping Cart. Search Events Event Dates. About Playbill Reviews Gallery.

Nice Work If You Can Get It, and You Can Get it at Cockpit in Court!

Depression era Broadway produced some of the most forgettable scripts and memorable show tunes ever written. A savvy 21st century writer named Joe DiPietro has mined who knows how many clunky old character types and plot situations and cobbled them together skillfully enough to earn a Tony nomination for this nice piece of Prohibition-era pastiche. As to the score, where authentic old hot tickets like Girl Crazy or Oh Kay might have hoped to log in one or maybe even two classic standards, Nice Work belts out one major George and Ira Gershwin hit after another. The story? The day before his wedding to a ditsy Isadora Duncan interpretive-dance nut named Eileen Evergreen, he falls for Billie Bendix, one of those feisty Ethel Merman tough gals with a voice of brass and a heart of gold.
