Crazy for You with music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin, and book by Ken Ludwig, is directed by Daniel C. Cooney, choreographed by Matthew Brennan, and music directed by Tyler Driskill.
A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, Crazy for You tells the story of young New York banker Bobby, who is sent to Nevada to foreclose on a theater. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly, the theatre owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through razzmatazz and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theater.
