What a Shame
2 January 2006 | by warmlandsSee all my reviews

I saw this production of Crazy For You on PBS, and found it to be very enjoyable. Checked on the PBS website and found that it is not available on DVD or even tape for that matter. Perhaps if more people request it, they will put it out on VHS or DVD. A real shame that musicals are no longer of the "feel good" type, but have to have a message or are real downers. The kids today don't know what they are missing. The music used is from Girl Crazy. At first I thought that I would not like the original Gershwin show tinkered with, however seeing this new production with a new story line is well worth viewing. Too bad if this show would be lost forever. The MGM movie of Girl Crazy with Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney is the better of the two version MGM released.
