Sugar Factory Playhouse presents “Crazy for You” by Ken Ludwig with lyrics by Ira Gershwin and music by George Gershwin. “Crazy for You” is directed by Liz Smith.
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 theater. 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 theater. Overflowing with memorable Gershwin tunes including “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,” this is one show you don’t want to miss!
