Just before his wedding night, a 1920s playboy runs into a bit of a mess that results in bootleggers on his tail and chorus girls running around him. Nice Work If You Can Get It, written by Tony Award-winning playwright Joe DiPietro, includes everything he says is good about life: music, laughter and falling in love. Music and lyrics by Ira and George Gershwin ensure a foot-tapping time for audience members.

Through 7/31. $15-20, times vary. Live Arts, 123 E. Water St. 977-4177.

We’re glad you’re participating. Here are a few simple rules to follow, which should be relatively straightforward.

1) Don’t call people names or accuse them of things you cannot support.
2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion.
