The Wahlkurs of the Gymnasium Muttenz presents: Crazy for You.
The musical tells the story of Bobby Child, a banker from New York City. He has the task to close a run-down theatre in Deadrock, Nevada. However, he falls in love with the daughter of the theatre owner, Polly Baker. Since Polly doesn't trust the banker, Bobby tries to impress her by
pretending to be someone else.
Based on the 1992 tap dance musical “Crazy for You” by George and Ira Gershwin, and Ken Ludwig, set in the Wild West we present you our adaptation which takes place in a ghetto in the 21st century, realized with the help of alternative dances and body percussion. Despite featuring several strong female characters the musical uses many antiquated gender stereotypes. While these stereotypes contribute to the humor of the musical we would like to point out that our intention is not to promote those stereotypes, but to raise awareness of gender norms and roles whilst enjoying an evening of merriment.
