Who could ask for anything more? The stunning all-Gershwin, tap-dancing extravaganza, riotously entertaining, and Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Crazy for You follows a young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theatre 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 theatre. This high-stepping Broadway musical includes a treasure trove of George and Ira Gershwin's most beloved songs including “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.”

Crazy for You features music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, a book by Ken Ludwig, co-conception by Ken Ludwig and Mike Ockrent, inspired by material by Guy Bolton and John McGowan, with original Tony Award-winning choreography by Susan Stroman recreated by Angelique Ilo. Crazy for You is directed by Ilo with musical direction by Ken Clifton.

Crazy for You will have scenic design by Adam Koch; lighting design by Richard Latta; original costume design by William Ivey Long; additional costume design by Emerald City Theatrical Costumes; sound design by Daniel Lundberg; wig/hair & makeup design by Roxanne De Luna; casting by ARC, Mark Brandon, CSA, and Jarrett Reiche. Nikki Lint is the production stage manager.
