Music: George Gershwin

Book: Ken Ludwig
Inspired by: The 1930 Gershwin musical Girl Crazy

What the critics say: A riotously entertaining show called Crazy for You uncorked the American musical’s classic blend of music, laughter, dancing, sentiment and showmanship with a freshness and confidence rarely seen during the Cats decade, Crazy for You scrapes away decades of cabaret and jazz and variety-show interpretations to reclaim the Gershwins’ standards, in all their glorious youth, for the dynamism of the stage

-- Frank Rich, The New York Times

Synopsis: A romantic comedic salute to the optimistic musicals of the 1930s, featuring a time of showgirls and cowboys and a city boy and a country girl who reconcile their differences, fall in love, and save a theater, all while singing beloved Gershwin classics, including Can’t Be Bothered Now, Slap That Bass, and Someone To Watch Over Me.
