About The Show

“Irresistible, irrepressible and inventive”

“The production is a delight”

“Sends you home on a high”

High energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous, the acclaimed Watermill Theatre production of Crazy for You is the ultimate feel-good musical. Starring Strictly Come Dancing winner Tom Chambers and West End & TV star Claire Sweeney with Charlotte Wakefield as Polly, this multi-award winning romantic comedy 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 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.

“Irresistible, irrepressible and inventive, bursts with a crazy,lovable spirit”

“The production is a delight — as silly yet smart a catch-all for a swell bunch of songs as you could wish for”

“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”
