Contest: Win Tickets To Nice Work If You Can Get It

Update: The contest is now closed. Unsurprisingly, most of your nice work if you can get its somehow involve theater. Thank you so much to everyone who entered. The winner was picked at random from all the entries. Congratulations Cassidy! If you didn't win, check back here on Monday for another contest.

Spring is almost here and with it comes new Broadway shows, like Nice Work If You Can Get It, a new musical comedy using the music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin (that's enough to get me to the theater). It is directed by Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes) and stars Matthew Broderick as wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter, who falls in love with bootlegger Billie Bendix (Kelli O'Hara) on the weekend of his wedding. Estelle Parsons also stars.

I am very excited to give away a pair of tickets to the show. The song "Nice Work If You Can Get It" refers to falling in love ("Holding hands at midnight 'neath a starry sky.") To be entered to win tickets, tell me in the comments what you think would be nice work, if only you could get it. For an extra entry, tweet about the contest or retweet one of my tweets about it. (Only one tweet or retweet will count for an extra entry.) You must be following on Twitter to win. One winner will be chosen at random on Friday, March 9 at 6 p.m. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle in the comments so I have a way to contact you if you win. Good luck!

Nice work if only I could get it - complimentary tickets to Broadway Shows every week, and all I would have to do is enjoy them. Not any real work involved.

My idea of nice work would be a Broadway theatre critic, so I could see everything for free and get to share my opinions with the masses - and hopefully steer them to the best shows! :)
