A fun, toe tapping musical, I was delighted from the beginning to the end, this show is pure family entertainment.

1930s New York swings to life in this high-octane, tap dancing phenomenon! Bachelor Bobby Child begrudgingly works at the family bank while he plugs away at his theatre career, but after he’s forced to foreclose on a property in the middle of nowhere, Bobby finds that his love of theatre and the love of his life are waiting for him in the most unlikely of places. In order to get both, he’ll have to pull a few tricks (and fake moustaches) from his theatrical back pocket!

Between the hijinx and hilarity, you’ll be tapping your feet and humming along to the famous songs, I Can’t Be Bothered Now, Bidin’ My Time, I Got Rhythm, Naughty Baby, They Can’t Take That Away from Me, But Not for Me, Nice Work if You Can Get It, Embraceable You and Someone to Watch Over Me.

The stage is packed with 24 performers. Starring an award winning cast, including Gaelen Beatty (Bobby Child), Jonathan Holmes (Bela Zangler), William Ford Hopkins (Lank Hawkins), Robin Sukoroff (Everett Baker), Britt MacLeod (Irene Roth), Wendy Bollard (Mother), Theo Budd (Perkins), and a special introduction to newcomer Kate Blackburn (Polly Baker).

Don’t miss this all-time classic musical with fabulous dance routines in December at Gateway Theatre. It will leave you not just humming the tunes as you leave the theatre, but singing the songs for days after!

Crazy for You plays at the Gateway Theatre (6500 Gilbert Road, Richmond.) thru to December 31, 2014, tickets and info online at
