What is Crazy For You about?
Crazy for You is a romantic musical comedy that follows the story of Bobby Child, a wealthy banker from New York who dreams of becoming a dancer. Bobby’s mother sends him off to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on a theatre’s mortgage, but instead falls in love with the owner's daughter, Polly Baker.
In an attempt to win her heart, he decides to put on a show at the theatre, and he encounters several obstacles along the way. However, the enthusiastic townspeople are eager to help him, and the show must go on.
The show features some of George and Ira Gershwin’s most memorable songs, including “I Got Rhythm,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and “Someone To Watch Over Me.” This musical celebrates the power of music, love, and following your dreams.
