Crazy For You
Cliffs Pavilion, Southend-on-Sea
Tue 26 to Sat 30 Sept 2017
High energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous, the acclaimed Watermill Theatre production of Crazy for You is the ultimate feel-good musical starring Tom Chambers (Top Hat and Strictly Come Dancing), Caroline Flack (Strictly Come Dancing, Love Island, The X Factor) and Charlotte Wakefield (Sound Of Music, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) featuring a fabulous score from the Gershwin brothers’ songbook.
Crazy For You charts the troubled love story of Bobby, son of a wealthy New York banking family and frustrated Broadway hoofer, and Polly, daughter of the proprietor of a failing theatre in Deadrock, Nevada. Sent to close the theatre down, Bobby falls for Polly and, in the guise of a Hungarian impresario, decides to save the theatre by putting on a show.
Mistaken identities, heartbreak, happiness and a wealth of memorable tunes, including I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Embraceable You all feature in this exhilarating celebration of the great Broadway musicals.
**** ‘The production is a delight — as silly yet smart a catch-all for a swell bunch of songs as you could wish for.’ The Times
**** ‘Sends you home on a high. Strictly’ s Tom Chambers’ Bobby doesn’t just dance up a storm and sing – he’s a fine physical comedian.’ WhatsOnStage
