NEW YORK (AP) -- Matthew Broderick is finding the work nice on Broadway and will be sticking around, but he's getting a new co-star.
Producers of "Nice Work If You Can Get It" said Wednesday that Broderick has extended his run to June 15, but Kelli O'Hara will play her final performance on March 31. She'll be replaced by Tony Award nominee Jessie Mueller starting April 2.
