About Crazy For YouWhen Bobby Child travels down to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on a mortgage, he gets a lot more than he bargained for: the mortgage is on a rundown Victorian theatre and the owner’s daughter Polly makes his heart flutter. Will Bobby take the chance to live out his dreams, or will he do what his demanding fiancée and mother want and run the family finance business?
Joyful, exuberant and completely giddy, the Crazy For You musical is a feel-good celebration of music, dancing and entertainment. It is based on Ira and George Gershwin’s 1930 musical Girl Crazy, with songs from other productions also included, and won the 1993 Tony Award and 1993 Olivier Award for Best Musical.
