O’Hara gets ‘Nice Work’

Actress to co-star with Matthew Broderick

Kelli O’Hara will star opposite Matthew Broderick in “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” the upcoming new tuner with a Gershwin score.

The casting reteams Broadway vet O’Hara with helmer Kathleen Marshall, who directed the thesp in the popular 2006 revival of “The Pajama Game.” in which she starred opposite Harry Connick Jr. (a name formerly attached to “Nice Work” in a prior incarnation).

Tuner, with a score drawn from the song catalog of George and Ira Gershwin, has a book by Joe DiPietro (“Memphis”) and has its roots in DiPietro’s 2001 regional outing “They All Laughed,” inspired by the 1926 Gershwin musical “Oh, Kay!” Storyline centers on a Prohibition-era playboy.

O’Hara’s last Broadway role was in the 2008 revival of “South Pacific.” Although Broderick has been in a handful of plays in recent years, he hasn’t appeared in a Rialto tuner since “The Producers.”

Roger Berlind, Sonia Friedman, Roy Furman and Scott Landis produce “Nice Work,” targeted for an April opening at a theater to be determined.
