Posted by  //  February 9, 2017  //  Arts & Live Music, Calendar of Events

Fri/Sat. 8pm, Sun. 2pm. Dowd Fine Arts Center Theater. Winner of the 1992 Tony award for best musical. New York banker Bobby Child is sent to a small mining town in Nevada to foreclose on a property. When Bobby arrives and discovers that the property is an old theater, he has another idea. Bobby recruits the whole town as well as some Broadway Follies dancers to put on a show, save the theater and win the heart of the sweetest girl in town. With fast-paced antics, plot twists and mistaken identities, “Crazy For You” is a comedic delight. The book, by the master of farce Ken Ludwig, seamlessly weaves together an iconic score by George and Ira Gershwin featuring some of the most well-known standards of the golden age of musical theatre. The lineup includes such classics as “Embraceable You,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and a tap dancing extravaganza: “I Got Rhythm!” Adults $19, Faculty/Staff/Senior $16, Students $9.
