Matthew Broderick, Sutton Foster to star in reading of Gershwin musical

Posted on

Tony winners Matthew Broderick and Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Millie) will star in an October reading of a potential Broadway production of the George and Ira Gershwin songbook musical Nice Work If You Can Get It, Variety reports. Kathleen Marshall will direct the reading, produced by Scott Landis. As the trade notes, an actor’s participation in the development stage does not guarantee that he or she will remain with the project. Were Nice Work If You Can Get It to arrive on Broadway with Broderick attached, it would be his first musical since The Producers. Foster most recently received a Tony nomination, her fourth, for playing Fiona in Shrek the Musical.
