Paul Hart directed the production which originally opened in August 2016. WhatsOnStage's review called the show a "crazy summer cocktail".

Crazy for You has music and lyrics from the Gershwin brothers and a book by Ken Ludwig. Songs in the show include "I Got Rhythm" and "Nice Work If You Can Get It". The plot is based on the Gershwin's hit Crazy Girl where a Danny is sent to look after his family's ranch but instead employs showgirls from Broadway as entertainment.
