Earlier this past Sunday night, Manhattan Concert Productions (MCP) put together a one night only concert staging production of the classic Tony winning Gershwin musical Crazy For You in honor of the show’s 25th Anniversary since it’s Broadway Debut. The concert was held at David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center.

For this concert production, it featured Susan Stroman recreating her Tony winning choreography from Broadway plus directing the concert presentation. It featured an all star cast including…

2 time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella the Musical, upcoming Bandstand Broadway),

Tony nominee Tony Yazbeck (On The Town – The Musical Comedy Classic, Finding Neverland – The New Musical),

Stage and screen legend Mark Linn Baker,

Saturday Night Live favorite Rachel Dratch,

Tony nominee Nancy Opel (Urinetown, Cinderella the Musical),

and much more.

CRAZY FOR YOU (which is an updated version of GIRL CRAZY) opened at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre in 1992 and ran for 1,622 performances. It was nominated 9 Tony Awards that same year winning for 3 including Best Musical.

Isn’t Gershwin music so S’WONDERFUL?!!!

Who could ask for anything more? Laura Osnes, Tony Yazbeck, Rachel Bloom, Jerry O’Connell, Rachel Dratch, and Jack McBrayer dance a joyous curtain call in Manhattan Concert Productions (MCP)’s CRAZY FOR YOU.
