Music and Lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin
Book by Ken Ludwig
Co-conception by Ken Ludwig and Mike Ockrent
Inspired by material by Guy Bolton and John McGowan
Originally produced on Broadway by Roger Horchow and Elizabeth Williams
Original Broadway Choreography by Susan Stroman
High energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous, Crazy for You is the ultimate feel-good musical with a fabulous score from the Gershwin brothers’ songbook. A huge hit originally on Broadway, and then in the West End, the production will be inventively reimagined for The Watermill stage with actor-musicians and stars Tom Chambers as Bobby.
Mistaken identities, plot twists, heartbreak, happiness and a wealth of memorable tunes, including I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Embraceable You, all feature in this exhilarating celebration of the great Broadway musicals.
Tom Chambers’ most recent stage credits include the UK tour of Private Lives, the West End production of White Christmas at the Dominion Theatre, and the Olivier and Evening Standard Award winning musical Top Hat, for which Tom was nominated for the Olivier and WhatsOnStage Award for Best Male Performer In A Musical. Tom is best known for his leading roles in television dramas Holby City and Waterloo Road as well as winning the 6th season of Strictly Come Dancing in 2008.
Crazy For You is directed by The Watermill’s Artistic Director, Paul Hart, with musical arrangements by Catherine Jayes.
