About the event

He’s a fish out of water and she’s a real catch

Theatre-mad  Bobby Child is torn between his show-business dreams and running the  family bank. He reluctantly heads west to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose  on a theatre’s mortgage, only to fall for the theatre owner’s daughter,  Polly. Desperate to prove his good faith, Bobby decides to put on a  show – complete with dancers from the glamorous Zangler Follies in New  York City – to save the theatre, renew the town and hopefully win  Polly’s love.

With a riotously entertaining book by Ken Ludwig and overflowing with glorious Gershwin melodies (including Someone to Watch Over Me, I Got Rhythm and They Can’t Take That Away from Me),  this large-scale production boasts 17 orchestra members and an  incredible 34 strong cast. It’s a joyful celebration ‘blessed with  ingenious, sparkling choreography from Susan Stroman, which sends you  out on a high from the joy of music and dance’ (Financial Times). The  original production of Crazy For You won several Tony® and Olivier Awards, including Best Musical.

Directed and choreographed by  multi-Tony® and Olivier award winner Susan Stroman, this spectacular  production transfers from a sell-out season at the Chichester Festival  Theatre. Starring Charlie Stemp, the Olivier-nominated star of Half a Sixpence and Mary Poppins, as Bobby, Carly Anderson, star of Wicked as Polly, and Drama Desk Award winner Tom Edden as Bela Zangler.

This is ‘a divine production that will leave you giddy’ Guardian
