Of course it is "nu" in the libretto.

"So, nu?" is an idiomatic expression even if some people have never heard it.

"So, new?" is not an idiomatic expression. It has not been said by anyone (other than those misquoting Guys and Dolls.)

This takes me back to the time someone argued that Eva Peron ran the Argentine treasury because she used the term "sixes and sevens with you" which clearly indicated that she handled the taxes levied on the citizens she was singing to.

Sometimes an idiomatic expression is just an idiomatic expression.
