Crazy For You

The vibrant music of George and Ira Gershwin propels this frothy show along on a tidal wave of great songs: “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “Embraceable You,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “I Can’t Be Bothered Now,” and many more. The playful story line allows great opportunities for hilarious physical comedy and impressive dancing. This is an energetic and spectacular crowd-pleaser.

Costumes

The large, colorful costume package for Crazy for You was created by Thomas G. Marquez for the American Musical Theatre of San Jose, and then augmented with a lavish Ziegfeld Follies finale created at MTWichita. The exceptionally wide range of characters — socialites, showgirls, prairie cowboys — is well represented and vividly designed.
