Crazy For You transfers to London
Posted on 5 December 2022
Susan Stroman’s critically-acclaimed production of the classic Gershwin musical Crazy For You is set to transfer to London following a sold-out season in Chichester this summer, with performances beginning on Saturday 24 June 2023 at the Gillian Lynne Theatre! With ingenious dancing and explosive musical numbers - Crazy For You is an epic ode to never giving up on your dreams and daring to give yourself up to love.
Crazy For You synopsis
This giddy and passionate romance is centred around the theatre-obsessed Bobby Child, a booming baritone and a native New Yorker, who dreams of being a show business icon. Torn between show business and running the family bank for his overbearing mother, Bobby heads to Nevada to foreclose a mortgage on the beautiful yet decaying Gaiety Theatre. It is there that he finds an instant connection with the theatre owner's daughter Polly.
Desperate to be true to himself and prove good faith, Bobby is determined to throw an extravagant show. Can he save the theatre and the town it occupies? Most importantly, can he capture Polly’s heart?

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
