The jazz pianist-singer will return to Broadway in spring 2009 in "Nice Work If You Can Get It," a new musical comedy using Gershwin standards, producer Scott Landis announced Monday. Connick will play a Long Island playboy in the show, which will feature a book by Joe DiPietro, one of the authors of "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change"; music by George Gershwin, and lyrics by Ira Gershwin. "Nice Work If You Can Get It" will play a pre-Broadway engagement at Boston's Colonial Theatre. The show will begin preview performances on Broadway in February at a theater to be announced and open in March. Other casting will be announced later. Kathleen Marshall will direct and choreograph. Marshall and Connick last worked together in the Tony-winning revival of "The Pajama Game" in 2006.
