Nice Work

Last weekend we went to the play by the local theater group. Attic Productions, located just outside of Fincastle, puts on some splendid theater, but we don't take advantage of it often enough.

The play we saw was Nice Work if You Can Get It, with music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin.

We attended a Saturday matinee and it was full of people. I am pleased that so many folks support this local effort.

This play appeared on Broadway in 2012; it's first production was in 2001.

The story is set in the late 1920s. The basic premise is a rich playboy is trying to marry a decent girl so his mother will let him run the family business. This is his third marriage. In the interim, he runs into a bootlegger (a female) and the bootlegger steals his wallet and decides to use his second house as a storage facility for her illegal hooch.

Hilarity ensues.

We enjoyed ourselves, as we generally do when we manage to make it out. The play shows this weekend for its final time locally, so if you have a chance, check it out. It's a lot of fun.


  1. Our community theater group is also very good. We haven't been in several years. Glad you had such a good time!

  2. Sounds like fun! Our community has a rich theater tradition and I love going to see live productions (even if they aren't the best quality, there's something fun about live productions).


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
