A S’marvelous evening with lighthearted Gershwin filled ‘WORK’

By: Apr. 11, 2024

Question: Who actually expects to see outstanding theatre far from Broadway?

Answer: Most avid theatergoers with discerning tastes expect it.

When a successful theatre company presents a period musical they pray for a hit. With good actors, a witty script, great music, excellent direction, and clever choreography that can transport an entire audience back in time; Coachella Valley Repertory has compiled such a hit.  NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT is a musical featuring glorious songs by George and Ira Gershwin, with a book written by Joe DiPietro. Much like previous Gershwin vehicles Crazy For You (a revamp of “Girl Crazy”) and My One and Only (hatched out of “Funny Face”), NICE WORK (has been assembled from the bones of an existing 1926 musical “Oh, Kay!”) inspired through the book by Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse. This current CVRep production is light, frothy, entertaining, frivolous, and zany fun with a whimsical charm that will keep a smile on your face the entire evening.  A giddy valentine to old-time musical theatre with nothing on its mind, but delirious amusement… They deliver; Big Time!
