"...Nice Work If You Can Get It is a re-working of an earlier George and Ira Gershwin musical, but with a new book and with the addition of other Gershwin songs. With a talented cast, sure-footed direction, and sensational choreography, Arizona Regional Theatre's local premiere production is a fast, funny and fun two hours of musical comedy bliss....Making her professional directorial debut, well-known Valley actress Trisha Ditsworth does a very impressive job instilling a fast pace in the show while also ensuring that her cast get big laughs while also creating unique, humorous characters. Mychal Leverage and Marina Blue Jarrette make a winning duo as Jimmy and Billie. Both characters are given plenty of funny moments and comical lines as well as several beloved Gershwin songs to sing. Under Ditsworth's clear direction, Leverage and Jarrette deliver the comic moments effortlessly and make their songs soar..."   -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)
