Crazy for You - 2017 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman returns to direct Gershwin's Tony Award-winning musical comedy Crazy For You 25 years to the day from its opening night on Broadway. Joined by Tony award nominees Tony Yazbeck and Laura Osnes, who will co-star as Bobby Child and Polly Baker for this one night only event, as well as three-time Tony Award nominee and the original Bobby Child, Harry Groener, who will return as the role of Bela Zangler. Comedic duo Rachel Dratch and Jack McBrayer will co-star as the comedic Patricia and Eugene Fodor.

Under the music direction of Kevin Stites, the performance features Stroman's choreography from the original production, a chorus of 240 singers from across the United States, a professional cast and creative team, and the enlarged forces of the New York City Chamber Orchestra. Following the success of The Secret Garden at Lincoln Center earlier this year, Crazy for You marks the fifth installment of Manhattan Concert Productions' critically acclaimed Broadway Series that has also included Parade, Titanic, and Ragtime.

With music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, and book by Ken Ludwig, Crazy for You is based on the Gershwin brothers' 1930 musical Girl Crazy, incorporating songs from several other productions as well.

The story follows Bobby Child (Yazbeck), a banker who dreams of dancing for Zangler's Follies, the most popular show in New York City. After a failed audition, his mother sends him to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on a rundown theater. There he meets Polly Baker (Osnes), who, unbeknownst to him, is the daughter of the theater’s owner. Bobby falls in love with her instantly and hatches a plan to save the theater.
