    What the popular press said...

    "Mildly entertaining."
    Ben Brantley for NY Times

    "A light-hearted romp, but unfortunately, it’s not as intoxicating as you’d hope."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "There’s a lot of fun stuff. ... Even at his most leaden, Broderick can’t quite sink this ship."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Despite a few bright spots, fails to hold together as a glittering entertainment."
    David Sheward for Back Stage

    "Seems content to coast on Gershwin and gags. Good stuff, much of it, but not enough."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Smart, altogether lovely reincarnation of a 1920s musical comedy."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "For Gershwin fans, 'Nice Work' will be intoxication enough."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Crams vintage Gershwin songs into a bubbly crowdpleaser."
    Steven Suskin for Variety
