Crazy for You, the Gershwin Musical, will take the stage of the Ohrstrom Bryant Theatre on Wed., July 10 for a two week run as part of Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre’s 30th summer season.
The leading roles of Bobby Child and Polly Baker will be played by Carl Danielsen and Robin Higginbotham respectively. SSMT audiences will remember Danielsen from SSMT’s Singin’ in the Rain, White Christmas, and most recently the 2011 production of Curtains. Higginbotham has played opposite Danielsen in those three musicals and was most recently seen this summer as Velma in Chicago. The two will sing and dance their way, backed up by a full singing and dancing chorus, through the show to familiar tunes by George and Ira Gershwin including “I Got Rhythm,” “Bidin’ My Time,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and “Embraceable You.” The book for Crazy for You is by playwright, Ken Ludwig.
