Jamie Wilson and Gavin Kalin present The Watermill Theatre production of Crazy For You. UK Tour beginning August 2017.
High energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous, the acclaimed Watermill Theatre production of Crazy for You is the ultimate feel-good musical. Strictly Come Dancing winner Tom Chambers and West End & TV star Claire Sweeney appear in this multi-award winning, romantic comedy, with Charlotte Wakefield as ‘Polly’ (Sound of Music, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), it features a fabulous score from the Gershwin brothers’ songbook.
Crazy For You charts the troubled love story of Bobby, son of a wealthy New York banking family and frustrated Broadway hoofer, and Polly, daughter of the proprietor of a failing theatre in Deadrock, Nevada. Sent to close the theatre down, Bobby falls for Polly and, in the guise of a Hungarian impresario, decides to save the theatre by putting on a show.
Mistaken identities, 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.
