“Who cares? I’m dancing and I can't be bothered now’’

Crazy For You

January 10-13, 2013 • Victoria Theatre - In mounting Crazy for You, Muse had the rare opportunity to bring Dayton audiences a show that was relatively unknown to most of them, even though it incorporates such beloved Gershwin hits as I Got Rhythm and Someone to Watch Over Me. This charming and hilarious romp through the glitzy streets of New York City and the sleepy, one-horse town of Deadrock, Nevada was the first Muse Machine production for director Joe Deer, who brought his tap dancing expertise to the young cast, including a leading man whom the show required to hoof it on the hood of a car (and who had exactly zero tap experience prior to auditions). But the learning curves were overcome, and the end product—complete with bar fights, chorus girls, love triangles, a British invasion, and a case of mistaken identity--played to all the diverse strengths of its stellar cast and delighted its audiences with the old-school charm that Muse Machine pulls off so well.
