The critical consensus

This is a corny piece of fluff, with an excellent, hard-working cast, and in some ways a welcome escape from the grim world outside, but ultimately that certain stardust that makes a production truly spectacular, is missing.

Big tap dance routines and even bigger set pieces dominate the Watermill Theatre’s touring production of Crazy for You at the Playhouse until Saturday, but at the expense of the chemistry in the big romances of the show.

I wouldn’t say I was ‘crazy’ for Crazy For You but it’s still an enjoyable couple of hours – and if you’re a fan of George Gershwin you’ll love it.

***(*)(*)Mike Smith, The Edinburgh Reporter, 03/04/2018

An elevated production of a possibly outdated musical, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

There’s no faulting the energy and commitment of the cast.

Crazy For You will bring enjoyment to most show-goers on drizzly spring evenings, though for some it will represent a once-glimmering relic, which requires a good polish.
