"Crazy for You features show-stopping musical numbers, fabulous songs and a tender and hilarious plot revolving around a love triangle," said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer. "With a score by the Gershwins, who could ask for anything more?"

This fast-paced, energetic extravaganza features lyrics by Ira Gershwin, music by George Gershwin, and book by Ken Ludwig. Billed as "The New Gershwin Musical Comedy," it is largely based on the songwriting team's 1930 musical, Girl Crazy, but incorporates songs from several other productions as well. Crazy for You won the 1992 Tony for Best Musical, the 1993 Olivier Award (London) and 1994 Dora Award (Toronto) for Best Musical.

The plot revolves around a well-to-do young New Yorker, Bobby Child, who is sent to Nevada to foreclose on a theatre owned by the family business. Falling in love with the local postmistress, Bobby decides to produce a show to save the theatre. Showgirls and cowboys deliver beloved classic songs including "Embraceable You," "I Got Rhythm," "Nice Work if You Can Get It," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," and the heartbreaking ballad "But Not For Me."

Crazy for You is being directed by Norb Joerder with choreography by David Wanstreet, and stars Julie Kleiner and Matt Loehr.
