About Crazy For You - A Gershwin Musical Comedy

When Broadway Meets West End in Hull!

Get ready for a toe-tapping, heart-warming musical adventure with ‘Crazy for You’. This acclaimed Broadway sensation, having wowed audiences in New York and London’s West End, is now set to dazzle Hull.

It’s a story set in the vibrant world of 1930s Broadway. Bobby, a theatre enthusiast, is dispatched to Nevada with a task to close down a theatre. But fate has other plans. He falls head over heels for Polly, the theatre owner’s daughter. Bobby’s grand scheme? To save the theatre by staging an extravagant show, while masquerading as a Broadway producer. Cue the chaos, laughs, and a whirlwind of mistaken identities!

‘Crazy for You’ is a celebration of classic Gershwin tunes like ‘I Got Rhythm’, ‘Embraceable You’, and ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’. Imagine the charm of ‘Calamity Jane’ combined with the dazzle of ’42nd Street’ – that’s the essence of this show.

With 9 prestigious awards under its belt in New York and London, this musical is a sure-fire hit. And though you might miss the current West End revival, you can experience the magic right here, brought to life by the talented Hessle Theatre Company. Their previous production, ‘Sister Act’, was a record-breaking sensation, and they’re all set to repeat the magic with ‘Crazy for You’.

Don’t miss this thrilling blend of high-energy tap dancing, Follies girls, and stage-struck cowboys. It’s a musical journey you won’t forget!

This amateur production of CRAZY FOR YOU® is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC.

Originally produced on Broadway by Roger Horchow and Elizabeth Williams.

Original Broadway Choreography by Susan Stroman.
