When a young New York banker is sent to the sleepy town of Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose a rundown theatre, his heart and life are turned upside down by a spitfire hometown girl. Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to save the theatre and win Polly’s love. This hilarious song-and-dance extravaganza features the Gershwin classics, “I’ve Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and “Embraceable You.” TONY Award winner for Best Musical! Book by Ken Ludwig, lyrics by Ira Gershwin, and music by George Gershwin.
“”Crazy for You” calls itself a “new Gershwin musical comedy,” and that’s what it is: a musical comedy with songs by George and Ira Gershwin that makes everything old seem young again, the audience included.”
The New York Times
“Crazy for You” is a sheer escapist delight. With so many remarkable performances of heavenly Gershwin tunes, don’t be surprised if you find yourself quoting the lyrics: “Who could ask for anything more?””
