VIDEO: Bay Area Musicals Presents CRAZY FOR YOU
Bay Area Musicals presents the musical CRAZY FOR YOU. Winner of the Tony and the Olivier Awards for Best Musical, CRAZY FOR YOU has wowed audiences on Broadway, the West End and around the world, reimagining classic Gershwin songs into a hilarious new book musical. The show-stopping production will be an intimate version of the large-scale musical featuring the original Tony Award-winning choreography of Susan Stroman, recreated by Director/Choreographer Matthew McCoy.
CRAZY FOR YOU features a book by Ken Ludwig, music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin. The show is inspired by material by Guy Bolton and John McGowan, and was originally produced on Broadway by Roger Horchow and Elizabeth Williams). Bay Area Musicals' production of CRAZY FOR YOU runs from November 10 - December 16, 2018 and will perform at San Francisco's Alcazar Theatre (650 Geary Street, San Francisco, CA 94103). The press opening will take place on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. Regular tickets range from $35 - $65 and can be purchase online at www.bamsf.org/crazy-for-you. Opening Night Fundraiser Tickets (available only for the Saturday, November 10 performance at 8:00 p.m.) range from $50 - $100 and includes dessert and a champagne toast with the cast (and can also be purchased online at www.bamsf.org/crazy-for-you).
Bay Area Musicals' production of CRAZY FOR YOU will be directed and choreographed by Matthew McCoy, with Music Direction by Jon Gallo.
"When choosing the first show for our fourth season," said Director Matthew McCoy, "I knew I wanted to open with a quintessential classic musical comedy, and specifically one that has not been seen recently in the Bay Area. No show fits that criteria better than CRAZY FOR YOU. Not only does it contain all of the classic Gershwin songs we know and love, but it tells a sweet, hilarious story (filled to the brim with true love, gun-fighting cowboys and side-splitting high jinks). I am especially excited to recreate Susan Stroman's Tony Award-winning choreography on the Alcazar stage. With giant tap numbers, hysterical mistaken identities, unlikely romance and fish-out-of-water antics, CRAZY FOR YOU will leave our audiences in stitches (and humming all the way home). It is the perfect Holiday experience for the whole family."
