Broadway Actors Deliver Show-Stopping Numbers in Crazy for You at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival

Treasured Gershwin songs meet sparkling, sensational dances in Crazy for You, the ultimate feel-good musical comedy that will kick-off the summer season on PSF’s Main Stage on June 12 at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts on the Center Valley campus of DeSales University.

From acclaimed Lend Me a Tenor and The Three Musketeers funnyman playwright Ken Ludwig, this Tony Award-winning musical sends a banker with show business stars in his eyes from New York to Deadrock, Nevada on official business. Mistaken identities, love at first sight, and hijinks hilarity resuscitate an abandoned theater and the spirit of a small town.

With a wealth of memorable Gershwin tunes from the American songbook including “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” Crazy for You bubbles over with show-stopping numbers and glistens with 1930s glamour.

Similar to the last several seasons, PSF expects the majority of performances to sell out. (Order early for best seating options.)
