Crazy For You is the story of Bobby Child, who is from a New York banking family, but who only wants to be a great dancer. His mother sends him to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on an old theater, where he instantly falls for Polly, the theater owner’s daughter. To save the theater, he wants to ‘put on a show’ using his showgirl friends from New York, but to make it happen he must use some trickery, resulting in plot twists, mistaken identities, lots of fun and great Gershwin music. Memorable songs include Embraceable You, Bidin’ My Time, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, I Got Rhythm, and Someone To Watch Over Me.
