May 8th to May 31th- Crazy for You You can’t get more American that the amazing Gershwin musical, Crazy For You! The West End’s own Laura McGinnis will play the role of Patsy.  It is the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930’s playboy, whose dream in life is to dance. And despite the serious efforts of his mother and soon-to-be-ex-fiancée, Bobby escapes New York, falls in love with the prettiest cowgirl in Deadrock, Nevada – and after a series of hilarious foils, mistaken identities, plot twists, and fabulous dance numbers – he finally achieves his dream! Memorable Gershwin tunes include I Got Rhythm, Nice Work if You Can Get It, Embraceable You and Someone to Watch Over Me. It’s a high energy, tap-dancing musical comedy. Location: 6th St. Playhouse, G.K. Hardt Theatre
