CRAZY FOR YOU - Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton Saturday 12 May 2018 2.30pm Inclusive Cost (U3A £1 session fee and seat) £45.50
High energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous, the acclaimed Watermill Theatre production of CRAZY FOR YOU is the ultimate feel-good musical. Strictly Come Dancing winner Tom Chambers and West End & TV star Claire Sweeney appear in this multi-award winning, romantic comedy, with Charlotte Wakefield as 'Polly' (Sound of Music, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), it features 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 proprieter 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.
