He’s a fish out of water and she’s a real catch.
Theatre-mad Bobby Child is torn between his show-business dreams and running the family bank. He reluctantly heads west to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a theatre’s mortgage, only to fall for the theatre owner’s daughter, Polly. Desperate to prove his good faith, Bobby decides to put on a show – complete with dancers from the glamorous Zangler Follies in New York City – to save the theatre, renew the town and hopefully win Polly’s love.
With a riotously entertaining book by Ken Ludwig and overflowing with glorious Gershwin melodies (including Someone to Watch Over Me, I Got Rhythm and They Can’t Take That Away from Me), this large-scale production boasts 17 orchestra members and an incredible 34 strong cast. It’s a joyful celebration ‘blessed with ingenious, sparkling choreography from Susan Stroman, which sends you out on a high from the joy of music and dance’ Financial Times. The original production of Crazy For You won several Tony® and Olivier Awards, including Best Musical.
Directed and choreographed by multi-Tony® and Olivier award winner Susan Stroman, this spectacular production transfers from a sell-out season at the Chichester Festival Theatre. Starring Charlie Stemp, the Olivier-nominated star of Half a Sixpence and Mary Poppins as Bobby, Carly Anderson, star of Wicked as Polly, and Drama Desk Award winner Tom Edden as Bela Zangler.
‘Susan Stroman’s choreography blows the roof off and wins standing ovations. Honestly, it doesn’t get any better than this’ Daily Mail

I loved every minute of this wonderful production of Crazy for You. Excellent singing, dancing, acting and choreography. I also liked the humour. All exceptionally clever. This was the second time I saw the musical and it was just as good as the first time. Charlie Stent the lead was phenomenal.

It's a brilliant show, a real not to be missed event.Superb cast all round and don't forget the music. It would be helpful if the booking confirmation had details of the door to use and which side of the theatre to use to access the seats.

We went to the Saturday matinee, and were happy to see it was virtually sold out - just a few seats here and there for those who haven’t seen this dazzling show. Charlie Stemp has extraordinary star quality. His dancing is faultless, and he also sings and seduces with his energy, playfulness and charisma. He’s beautifully matched with a very accomplished leading lady, and delightful wider cast of talent - all who give 100% Add to this, a sublime Gershwin score of mostly familiar songs, and you have a sure-fire hit that should scoop a host of awards. Highly recommended.
