Put on your dancing shoes and tell the world that you've got rhythm! Crazy for You won three Tony Awards in 1992, including the award for Best Musical. It follows the story of Bobby Child, a would-be performer trapped in the life of a New York banker by his overbearing mother. On a business trip to Deadrock, Nevada, Bobby meets Polly Baker, who just happens to be saddled with a worn-out theatre in need of repair. While it sounds like love at first sight, things quickly take the first of many hilarious, complicated turns. Featuring a script by Ken Ludwig and a host of Gershwin hits including "Someone to Watch Over Me," "Embraceable You," "I've Got Rhythm," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "But Not for Me," and many more, Crazy for You will have audiences of all ages tap dancing in the aisles.

Gold, Platinum, and Diamond members of the Center for the Arts Guild are invited to a special backstage tour before the November 17 performance.
