Crazy for You

Music and Lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin

Book by Ken Ludwig

This zany, lovable classic is one of the most popular Gershwin musicals of all time with lots of glitter, girls, big tap numbers and a score filled with memorable Gershwin favorites like “I Got Rhythm,” “Embraceable You,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” But Not For Me,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me.” A banker who yearns to be in show business is sent West to foreclose on a rundown theater. The boy-meets-girl story begins when he sees the theater owner’s daughter (not knowing who she is) and falls in love.

All shows are in the outdoor amphitheater at 7:30. 
July 9-August 4 
Audio-described performance: Thursday, Aug. 1 
Cost: Friday and Saturday: $36 covered/$15 lawn
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday: $30 covered/$15 lawn
