Nice work, Nice Work! (I’ve been holding on to that gem for a while.) Following an announcement yesterday that Once will hit the road, producers of fellow Best Musical nominee Nice Work If You Can Get It have announced their own plans to launch a national tour in the fall of 2013.
The Kelli O’Hara/Matthew Broderick-led homage to musicals past received a whopping 10 Tony Award nominations this year, which no doubt contributed to its sizable box office bump in the week succeeding the nomination announcement.
For those keeping score of this year’s crop of Best Musical nominees, that’s two national tours, one closing notice (the Bible thumpin’ Leap of Faith) and one wild card: Disney’s Newsies, which has long been expected to announce tour plans. Given the uptick of nominee news, don’t be surprised if that headline happens sooner rather than later.
Tour dates and destinations for Nice Work have not yet been announced.
