A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.” Originally produced on Broadway in 1992, CRAZY FOR YOU won the Tony Award for Best Musical and Best Choreography putting Susan Strohman, of THE PRODUCERS fame, on the map.
CRAZY FOR YOU was co-conceived by Ken Ludwig and Mike Ockrent and inspired by material by Guy Bolton and John McGowan. It was originally produced on Broadway by Roger Horchow and Elizabeth Williams. CRAZY FOR YOU is presented through special arrangements with Tams Witmark. All authorized performance material also provided by TW. www.tamswitmark.com
