George and Ira Gershwin’s hit musical comedy is packed full of classic songs including “I Got Rhythm”, “Someone To Watch Over Me”, “Embraceable You” and “Nice Work If You Can Get It”. The original 1992 production won both the Tony and Olivier Award for Best New Musical.The creative team from the multi-award winning production of Hello, Dolly! reunites, including director Timothy Sheader, choreographer Stephen Mear and designer Peter McKintosh, with Into the Woods musical supervisor, Gareth Valentine.
Crazy for You, which received more five star reviews than any other musical in 2011, transferred directly into West End
"full of youthful exuberance...the show brims with a sassy joie de vivre" "Stephen Mear's choreography is INGENIOUS and POLISHED"
"beautifully choreographed by Stephen Mear and directed with aplomb by Timothy Sheader...this production is a glorious blaze of colour and exuberance" "IRRESISTIBLE"
"nothing short of sublime...designed to put a smile on your face
"You'll go crazy for Gershwin's girls"
"the sheer joy the company take in their work is infectious...Clare Foster is terrific...Sean Palmer is a handsome sweetheart"
"Crazily enjoyable summer treat of a musical features the best musical score in London"
"spirits soar during this delirious revival...the director, Timothy Sheader, the superbly inventive choreographer Stephen Mear and an ebullient company all spendidly delivery the goods...A DELIGHT"
"a starlit tunnel to showbiz heaven"..."Timothy Sheader's return to directing in his theatre's triumphant season conjures light and joy, wisecracks and whirling feet."
