Crazy for You is the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930’s playboy, whose dream in life is to dance. This high energy comedy includes mistaken identity, plot twists, and fabulous dance numbers. 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.”
