Nice Work If You Can Get It hits the road for its First National Tour, and Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts is lucky enough to host it January 20-25, 2015 presented by Broadway Series South and North Carolina Theatre.
It's the Roaring Twenties and a cast of outrageous characters gather in New York to celebrate the wedding of wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter. But things don't go as planned when the playboy meets Billie Bendix, a bubbly and feisty bootlegger who melts his heart. The champagne flows and the gin fizzes in the hilarious, Tony® Award winning musical comedy Nice Work If You Can Get It.
The musical closed on Broadway on June 15, 2013 after running a little over a year. The National Tour will preview in Clemson, SC in August then stop in Texas, Missouri and Illinois before bringing the high-stepping Broadway magic to Raleigh. Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts is no stranger to shows centered around the roaring 20s. Thoroughly Modern Millie and Chicago have both taken center stage here in Raleigh and Nice Work If You Can Get It will be no different come January.
This sparkling, madcap tale combines laughter, romance and high-stepping Broadway magic for an evening bursting with girls, glamour and the glorious songs of Gershwin! Tickets are on sale now at the Duke Energy Center Box Office and Ticketmaster
