Crazy For You

Music by George Gershwin
Lyrics by Ira Gershwin
Book by Ken Ludwig
Co-Conception by Ken Ludwig and Mike Ockrent
Inspired by material by Guy Bolton and John McGowan

Footlite's main stage season will open with this revision of the Gershwin's "Girl Crazy." A high-energy comedy of mistaken identities, plot twists, fabulous costumes and dances, and classic Gershwin music, "Crazy for You" is the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930's playboy, whose dream in life is to dance. And despite the serious efforts of his mother and soon-to-be-ex-fiancee, Bobby achieves his dream! Memorable Gershwin tunes include "I Can't Be Bothered Now," "Bidin' My Time," "I Got Rhythm," "They Can't Take That Away from Me," "Embraceable You" and "Someone to Watch Over Me." Rich Baker will direct Footlite's first production of this 1992 Tony Award winner for Best Musical.
