Girl Crazy - 1930 - Broadway

Since its Broadway opening in 1930, GIRL CRAZY has dazzled audiences with gorgeous and toe-tapping songs like “Bidin’ My Time,” “Embraceable You,” “Treat Me Rough,” “But Not For Me,” and “I Got Rhythm.” The show made Ginger Rogers a star and was Ethel Merman’s stage debut. George Gershwin conducted the opening night orchestra, which included Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Glenn Miller, and Jimmy Dorsey. ‘Nuff said? Go crazy with us!

That's certainly a near-impossible mountain to climb, because even some forms of biases, knowledgeable judgments, are key when doing a task like this. But we need to make it as objective as possible when dealing with something so subjective.

You might not be familiar with the name Philip Labes, but there's a good chance you've seen him in guest roles on buzzy TV shows like a?oeWatchmena?? and a?oeGLOWa?? or co-starring with Anthony Rapp and Cheyenne Jackson in the feature film a?oeOpening Night.a?? Or perhaps you've seen his music videos and sketches online. Mr. Labes is clearly a man with a lot of irons on the fire. He also co-wrote (with Michael O'Konis) and stars in the improbably-named a?oeMore Guns! A Musical Comedy about the NRAa?? which is coming to San Francisco's Z Space in late January after running for 18 months at Second City Hollywood. Labes is the sort of young performing arts polymath who is perhaps just that one key role or project away from becoming something of a household name. BroadwayWorld spoke to him recently from his home base in LA. In conversation, he is both joyful about his work process and sanguine about the challenges of forging a successful career in the performing arts.
