by BWW News Desk - Nov 16, 2009

Girl Crazy, the Gershwin's fanciful depression-era musical of 1930, is the tale of a sophisticated New Yorker (Chris Diamantopoulos) marooned in a dusty Western cow town with no one who understands him but the Yiddish-speaking cabbie (Wayne Knight) who brought him there and no one to love but the only woman (Becki Newton) within 50 miles. The show gave birth to one of the all-time flashiest Broadway scores, featuring 'I Got Rhythm,' 'Embraceable You,' 'But Not for Me' and 'Bidin' My Time,' among others. Girl Crazy opened at the Alvin Theatre on October 14, 1930 and ran for 272 performances. (more...)
