What's better than a Gershwin musical? A better Gershwin musical, of course, and that is what Lend Me a Tenor writer Ken Ludwig set out to create when he penned Crazy for You, a Tony winner that opened on Broadway in 1992 to rave reviews. Ludwig's script is a reworking of Gershwin's Girl Crazy, a lighter-than-air story about star-crossed love and putting on a show. The songs collected in Crazy for You include "Someone To Watch Over Me," "Embraceable You," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "I Got Rhythm," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," and a whole lot more.
On Thursday, June 2nd, Gershwin fans can take in Crazy for You at Theatre Memphis while helping to support a good cause. The Community Legal Center, a nonprofit that provides representation in civil matters to people who can't afford legal counsel, is hosting its annual night at the theater fund-raiser. Starting at 6 p.m., partiers can enjoy wine, beer, and heavy hors d'oeuvres while bidding on items in the Community Legal Center's silent auction. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40.
