Winner of the Tony and the Olivier Awards for Best Musical, Crazy for You has wowed audiences on Broadway, the West End, and around the world reclaiming the Gershwin songs into the perfect book musical. The showstopping production will be an intimate version of the large-scale musical featuring the original Tony-winning choreography of Susan Stroman, recreated by Bay Area Musicals' founder & artistic director, Matthew McCoy, who will also direct.
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 theater. 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 theater. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include "I Got Rhythm," "Naughty Baby," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "Embraceable You," "But Not for Me," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," and "Someone to Watch Over Me."
