The Newest Gershwin Musical: Crazy for You


In 1992,  a Gershwin musical from 1930, Girl Crazy, was adapted into Crazy for You.  This musical has been extraordinarily popular since its release, at least partly because audiences hear some of the most beloved songs from Ira & George Gershwin over the years, including "I Got Rhythm," "Bidin' My Time," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," and "Embraceable You."

Opera House Theatre Company presents this Gershwin musical comedy at Thalian Hall under the direction of Ron Chisholm.  Actors Jason Aycock (Bobby) and Dick Bunting (Bela Zangler) visited our studios to tell us all the details.  Friday & Saturday evening performances are at 8:00, plus Sunday matinees at 3:00.  The show runs July 8-26.  Online tickets here.
