Crazy For You is the classic tale of a boy, a girl, and a theatre in need of salvation.
Stage-struck Bobby Child works as a banker for his overbearing mother, Lottie, but spends his time off practicing dance routines and sneaking in to audition for Zangler’s Follies, the most popular show in New York City, helmed by Bela Zangler. But his showbiz career is going nowhere, and he jumps at the chance to get out of town.
Arriving in hot and dusty Deadrock, Nevada, Bobby falls for Polly Baker whose father happens to own the beautiful, but decaying, Gaiety Theatre, which he has been sent by the bank to seize. Now lovestruck, Bobby comes up with a plan: call in his friends, the Follies Girls, all the way from New York City, cast the locals-- a bunch of rundown cowboys - and put on a show to save the old building.
Crazy For You is a truly delightful homage to the beloved, optimistic musicals of the 1930s: a world of showgirls and cowboys, in which a city boy and a country girl reconcile their differences, fall in love, and save a theatre, the old-fashioned way.
