“It is heaven on earth. Everything an American musical comedy should be.” That’s how The New Yorker describes Tony Award-winning Crazy for You, the story of young, rich Bobby Child, sent from New York City to Deadrock, Nevada, in the height of the 1930s Depression to foreclose on a broken-down theatre. Bobby meets Polly Baker, spunky daughter of the theatre owner, and the rest is . . . singing, dancing, romance, and laughter! This endearing, vivacious show features unforgettable songs from American music masters George and Ira Gershwin, including “Shall We Dance,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and more.
