Why See Crazy for You?
Old school charm is a clear winner this holiday
This holiday season, rejoice as the Gershwin's beautiful 1992 musical returns to Washington, where it started out before moving to Broadway. The Tony Award-winning musical was based on the team's original work, the 1930 musical, Girl Crazy, but also featured music from other productions, including I've Got Rhythm, Someone to Watch Over Me and Nice Work If You Can Get It. Combined with flawless tap-dancing choreography, this charming show takes us all back to the golden days of Broadway, with the requisite glamor and romance that is Gershwin.
The musical that revitalized Broadway
When a musical-loving banker is dispatched to foreclose on a small-town theater, he rebels against his job, and decides to revive it instead with some help from the world-famous Follies, some slapstick comedy and bucket-loads of old-school charm. Throw in a deserted goldmining town, a gorgeous yet naive ingenue, a hopeless romantic, mistaken identities and singing cowboys, and here you have the musical that arguably won back the Broadway reputation from London's West End after the heyday of the Seventies and Eighties.Uniquely, the original 1992 production won both the Tony and Olivier Award for Best New Musical in the same year!
