In the best tradition of classic American musical comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU uses beloved Gershwin songs to tell the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930's playboy, whose dream in life is to dance. And despite the serious efforts of his mother and soon-to-be-ex-fiancée, Bobby achieves his dream! The show, which takes us on a singing and tap-dancing journey from New York City to the American West and back, won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1992. CRAZY FOR YOU includes such show-stopping songs as “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can't Take That Away from Me,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” “Embraceable You” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.” It's a high energy comedy which includes mistaken identity, plot twists, fabulous dance numbers and, of course, that classic Gershwin music.
