Crazy for You

$40-$89

A musical-loving banker sent to foreclose on a small-town theatre decides to revive it instead with the magic of the Follies, some slapstick comedy and a whole lot of charm. Flush with mistaken identities, a classic love story and 1930s glamour, Crazy for You radiates with playful humor and high-energy show-stopping numbers.

A wealth of Gershwin tunes including “I’ve Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “Nice Work If You Can Get It” fuse with exhilarating tap numbers in this triumphant musical celebration.
