A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, Crazy For You tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner's daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows--through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity--to win Polly's heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include "I Got Rhythm," "Naughty Baby," "They Can't Take That Away from Me," "Embraceable You," "But Not for Me," "Nice Work if You Can Get It," and "Someone to Watch Over Me."
With book by Ken Ludwig and the songs of the inimitable Gershwin brothers (score by George, lyrics by Ira), this 1992 Tony-winning romantic musical comedy is based on the 1930 musical “Girl Crazy,” with songs from that Gershwin production and others. Directed and choreographed for Bay Area Musicals by Matthew McCoy, who’s re-creating Susan Stroman’s Broadway choreography.
