Nice Work If You Can Get It – Broadway Musical – Cast and Director/Choreographer’s Advice


[MUSIC – “NICE WORK IF
YOU CAN GET IT”] KELLI O’HARA: You
can only be you. You can’t be anybody else. And no matter what anybody
else is doing, it’s not what you do. And one of these days what
you do will be the thing that’s wanted. So just keep doing
what you do. ROBYN HURDER: Take
ballet class. I’m just going to say it. If I didn’t have ballet, I
wouldn’t be here today. Ballet is the root. It’s the core. If you don’t have it,
I mean, I can go to auditions and see– I can pick out the dancers who
are great jazz dancers, but if you don’t have the core training
of ballet, then it puts you in a different
category. KATHLEEN MARSHALL: I think to
choreograph, especially on Broadway, it’s really
good to know style. I mean, this is a show that
takes place in the ’20s. The last show I did took
place in the ’30s. So I think it helps to
understand different eras and different styles. Look at old movies. Watch old TV shows. Watch old MGM musicals, old
Fred and Ginger musicals. Understand how those classic
musicals work, and then you can turn around and
make it your own. [MUSIC – “NICE WORK IF
