I did not think this event was very good, especially after seeing "Burn The Floor" which was absolutely great.
The show felt like a High School Production - Not very professional. The lead female singer was good however.

A three time Tony Award winner, the N.Y. Times critic Frank Rich hailed Crazy for You for “some of the greatest songs ever written” including “I Got Rhythm,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get it,” “Embraceable You,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
