Crazy For You


Led by director Chesley Santoro Krohn, over 40 HITS Theatre students will bring to Miller the Tony award-winning Broadway musical Crazy for You. A high-energy comedy of mistaken identities, plot twists, fabulous costumes and dances, and classic Gershwin music, Crazy for You is the story of Bobby Child, a stage-struck NYC banker who heads to desolate Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose a rundown theater. It’s love at first sight when he runs into spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter, who doesn’t realize he’s the heartless businessman she’s vowed to get even with.

Based on the 1930 musical Girl Crazy with a book by Ken Ludwig, this Gershwin extravaganza is filled with song, dance, and hilarious dialogue. Audiences will be swept up in this artfully constructed tale of boy meeting girl in the Wild West, where they spread goodness and ultimately fall in love. Performances run March 31-April 2 and April 7-April 9 at Miller Outdoor Theatre at Hermann Park.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
