Why See Crazy For You?

George and Ira Gershwin’s hit musical comedy is packed full of classic songs including “I Got Rhythm”, “Someone To Watch Over Me”, “Embraceable You” and “Nice Work If You Can Get It”. The original 1992 production won both the Tony and Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

The creative team from the multi-award winning production of Hello, Dolly! reunite as Timothy Sheader directs, with choreography by Stephen Mear and designs by Peter McKintosh.

Gareth Valentine returns as the musical director after joining the Open Air Theatre last season for Sondheim's Into the Woods.
