Refreshing as a cool shower on a sizzling Summers day!
23 August 2013 | by gilturkSee all my reviews

Despite a rural/country setting of 'Crazy For You', the story which also involves big city bankers, finds this revised Gershwin musical originally presented in the 1930's as 'Girl Crazy' to be an outstanding production that PBS aired in 1999. The production presented in a New Jersey theatre and performed by very talented group of singers and dancers known as the Paper Mill Playhouse, excel in all respects. The choreography by Susan Stroman will leave you in awe and the terrific orchestra backing them all is worthy of sustained applause. I was fortunate to have videotaped the telecast. Since it has not had a commercial release, I will entertain sharing it with other devotees of this sparkling show.
