‘Crazy For You’ is the story of Bobby Child, a stage-struck New Yorker, who’s dream in life is to dance. Bobby Child is sent to a small, poor town in Nevada to close down the local theater. Soon Bobby falls in love with the theater owner’s daughter, Polly. In order to save the theater, he dreams up the idea to put on a show to raise money for the theater. In the end, the town is reinvigorated, the theater is saved and Bobby finds love. ‘Crazy For You’ first opened on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre in 1992 and ran for 1,622 performances starring Harry Groener and Jodi Benson. ‘Crazy ForYou’ received three Tony Awards for Musical, Choreographer and Costume Designer. Memorable Gershwin tunes include I Can’t Be Bothered Now, Bidin’ My Time and I Got Rhythm. It’s a high energy comedy which includes mistake in identity, plot twists, fabulous dance numbers, tapping and classic Gershwin music.
