The musical “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” which stars two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick and four-time Tony nominee and Oklahoma native Kelli O’Hara, has celebrated its 200th Broadway performance, reports BroadwayWorld.com.

“Nice Work if You Can Get It,” which opened in April at the Imperial Theatre, features several beloved George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin songs, including “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “I’ve Got to Be There,” “Sweet & Lowdown,” “’S Wonderful,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” Fascinating Rhythm,” and “But Not for Me.”

O’Hara was born in Elk City and raised in Edmond; she graduated from Deer Creeks schools and Oklahoma City University. She stars as Billie Bendix, a bootlegger who meets wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter (Broderick) on the weekend of his nuptials.
