Crazy For You
Crazy For You, the Gershwin musical might appear to have a familiar storyline. Spoiled New York playboy is sent out west to foreclose on an aging theatre. There he meets the proprietor’s daughter and falls head over heels in love. Naturally she rejects him because of his mission. To prove his love, he tries to save the theatre only to meet with apparent failure at both love and business. When she comes to realize that she is in love with him the result is a happy ending.
But it’s not that simple...Add to the mix, a fiance seeking commitment, some eccentric Deadrock citizens, a domineering mother and a Broadway impresario who shows up at the most inopportune time resulting in some very comical interactions. In fact, the twists and turns that lead to the happy ending are among the most hilarious ever conceived for a Broadway musical. And with twenty-two of the best known George and Ira Gershwin songs and melodies helping to tell the story, Crazy For You becomes one joyous romp as it moves between Broadway and Nevada’s Deadrock city.
