You can't get more American that the amazing Gershwin musical, Crazy For You! It is the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930's playboy, whose dream in life is to dance. And despite the serious efforts of his mother and soon-to-be-ex-fiancée, Bobby escapes New York, falls in love with the prettiest cowgirl in Deadrock, Nevada - and after a series of hilarious foils, mistaken identities, plot twists, and fabulous dance numbers - he finally achieves his dream! Memorable Gershwin tunes include I Can't Be Bothered Now, Bidin' My Time, I Got Rhythm, Naughty Baby, They Can't Take That Away from Me, But Not for Me, Nice Work if You Can Get It, Embraceable You and Someone to Watch Over Me. It's a high energy, tap-dancing musical comedy that was an overnight American Classic when it won the Tony Award for Best New Musical in 1992.
"...spectacular choreography by lead actor Joseph Favalora and a winning performance by Abbey Lee..."
