'Crazy for You' closes Summer Theatre
"Crazy for You" finishes out the Minot State University Summer Theatre's calendar, running July 19-24. The show is directed by Aili Smith, Summer Theatre associate director.
Listen and enjoy the music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin as playboy Bobby Child fulfills his longtime dream to dance on stage. As a classic love story set in the 1930s, in "Crazy for You," New York native Child is sent to the small, poor town of Deadrock, Nevada, to shut down the local theater. Shortly upon his arrival, he meets and quickly falls in love with the theater owner's daughter, Polly Baker. Revel in the music and watch as Child dreams up an idea to put on a show to raise money in order to save the theatre.
The story is filled with cowboys, tap-dancing showgirls, mistaken identities and romance, all accompanied by Gershwin classics, including "They Can't Take That Away from Me," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," "Bidin' My Time" and "I've Got Rhythm." The timeless songs are sure to bring out the rhythm in audiences of all ages.
