Watch Danny Gardner and Ashley Spencer in Rehearsal for Crazy for You
The Gershwin musical will run at Signature Theatre.
Take a behind-the-scenes look at rehearsals for Signature Theatre's production of The Gershwins' and Ken Ludwig's Crazy for You, starring Danny Gardner (Dames at Sea) and Ashley Spencer (Grease) in this footage from rehearsal. Featuring new direction from Matthew Gardiner and choreography from Tony nominee Denis Jones, Crazy for You is set to run November 7-January 14, 2018, in Signature Theatre's MAX Theatre.
Crazy for You is described as follows: "Bobby Child, a musical-loving banker sent to foreclose on a small-town theater decides to revive it instead with the magic of the Follies, some slapstick comedy and a whole lot of charm. Crazy for You is flush with mistaken identities, a classic love story, tap numbers and George and Ira Gershwin's glorious songs including 'I've Got Rhythm,' 'Someone to Watch Over Me,' 'Embraceable You,' and 'Nice Work If You Can Get It.' "
In addition to Gardner and Spencer in the lead roles of Bobby Child and Polly Baker, the cast will feature Bobby Smith (Signature's Titanic) as Bela Zangler, Natascia Diaz (Signature's West Side Story) as Irene Roth, and Cole Burden (The Bridges of Madison County) as Lank Hawkins.
