"Crazy for You" is a truly delightful homage to the beloved, optimistic musicals of the 1930s: a world of showgirls and cowboys in which a city boy and a country girl reconcile their differences, fall in love and save a theater, the old-fashioned way. The heartwarming story follows a hilarious case of mistaken identity, dotted with Vaudeville-era jokes and tender moments, and it uses every opportunity to break into spectacular tap dance routines. This romantic comedy, which won both a Tony Award and an Olivier Award for Best Musical, is based on popular George and Ira Gershwin tunes including “I Got Rhythm,” “Embraceable You,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
The cast includes Nick Madson as Bobby Child, Anna Hardcastle as Polly Baker, Jane Phillips as Mrs. Lottie Child, Brekken Baker as Irene Roth, Dave Gordon as Lank Hawkins, Andrew Bates as Bela Zangler, Becky DeLio-Trampler as Patricia Fodor and Brian Trampler as Eugene Fodor.
