A classic Gershwin musical, Crazy For You tells the story of Bobby Child - he's expected to run his family's bank, but all he wants to do is live his dreams of entering showbusiness and tread the boards in New York. When he's reluctantly sent to Nevada to foreclose a theatre, he falls for the theatre owner's daughter Polly, and decides to help them put on a show to save the venue.
With a book by Olivier Award winner Ken Ludwig, this beautiful musical is overflowing with glorious Gershwin melodies including Someone to Watch Over Me, I Got Rhythm and They Can't Take That Away from Me.
