Crazy For You Tickets
Crazy For You returns to the stage!
George and Ira Gershwin's musical comedy, Crazy For You, celebrated its 30th-anniversary revival at Chichester Festival Theatre, and is now returning for a West End transfer!
Having choreographed the original production in 1992, Susan Stroman returned to choreograph and direct the show. Her contribution to the original production earned her first Tony for Best Choreography. Thirty years later, she returned to spearhead the revival.
What is Crazy For You about?
Crazy For You tells the story of stage-struck Bobby Child, torn between his showbiz dreams and his wealthy mother and fiancée's demands for him to run the family bank in New York. At his mother's behest, Bobby reluctantly travels west to Nevada to the quiet mining town of Deadrock to foreclose on a mortgage. However, he finds that the mortgage is on a dilapidated Victorian theatre. What's more, the owner's daughter Polly is the girl of his dreams.
Lovestruck and desperate to prove himself, Bobby plans to put on a show – complete with dancers from New York's Follies – to save the theatre. But what will happen when Polly discovers his real reason for being in Deadrock?
Crazy For You awards and songs
The romantic musical comedy Crazy For You features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin, with a book by famed comic playwright Ken Ludwig. The musical is full of catchy Gershwin melodies, including showstoppers such as 'Embraceable You', 'I Got Rhythm', and 'Someone To Watch Over Me'.
The original Broadway production won several awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Choreography and Best Costume Design in 1992 and two Drama Desk Awards in the same year. In addition, the 1993 London production boasts three Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical.
