The reviews are in! WAAPA’s Crazy For You is an absolute smash-hit!

This icon of musical theatre is a classic farce: the showfolk of New York meet the hicks of a dead-end mining town in Nevada, saving a bankrupt theatre, revealing a mistaken identity and uniting a rich city boy and plucky country girl along the way.

The story is set to the much-loved soundtrack of the legendary Gershwin Brothers, Ora and George. A 31-piece orchestra of outstanding Music students perform some of the all-time greatest musical hits including Someone to Watch over Me, Embraceable You, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Nice Work If You Can Get It and the show-stopping I Got Rhythm.

Crazy for You leadsNot only is it a blockbuster musical, but Crazy for You is a celebration of our privilege and good fortune to assemble together and enjoy live theatre in these dire, pandemic times for the worldwide entertainment industry.

The 40 cast members are outstanding and the show’s two leads, Chloe Malek (Polly) and James McAlpine (Bobby) are fully formed stars. The show is packed with huge ensemble numbers and is a real treat for lovers of tap.

Crazy for You CastThe music students performing their hearts out in the pit are on fire and nail every single Gershwin classic that make up this beloved musical.

The set and costume design is exceptional. Everything sparkles under the exquisite lighting design and the impressive set pieces are ingenious. 

Crazy for You is currently on stage at His Majesty’s Theatre with performances continuing through to Thursday 17 June at 7.30pm, with matinees on Saturday 12 and Wednesday 16 June at 2.00pm.

Be sure to witness this timeless blend of music, comedy, dancing, romance and showmanship. You’d be crazy to miss it!

Tickets are available here.
