By Ken Ludwig, George and Ira Gershwin. Therry Dramatic Society (SA). Arts Theatre. 2 to 11 June, 2011.
Based on the Gershwin Brothers’ 1930 musical Girl Crazy, the Tony Award winning Crazy for You is a high-energy show packed with song, dance, comedy, love and, of course, theatre. Borrowing its soundtrack from an array of earlier productions, including ADamsel In Distress, Shall We Dance and Treasure Girl, the musical numbers are familiar and much loved.
Brady Lloyd and Fiona DeLaine are superbly cast in the key roles of Bobby Child and Polly Baker. They make a wonderful pair onstage, well matched physically and in talent.
