Chichester Theatre Trip – Crazy For You
August 22, 2022
Coach pick up, time to spend in Chichester, evening performance and return coach.
The first trip I ever ran was to the West End production of Crazy For You back in May 1995. It proved so popular that night that 27 years on I’m still running them! This time Crazy For You is the Summer musical revival for Chichester in their 60th Anniversary year. It is 30 years since the first performance of Crazy For You on Broadway, which at the time was choreographed by Susan Stroman. It won her the TONY Award for best choreography that year and Chichester are thrilled that Susan Stroman herself will direct and choreograph this anniversary production.
In addition, the star who arguably had his breakthrough at Chichester just a few years ago in Half A Sixpence, Charlie Stemp, is back in the lead role of Bobby Child. Currently starring as Bert in Mary Poppins in the West End and having been in three Pantos at the London Palladium as well as starring in Hello Dolly! alongside Bette Midler and Bernadette Peters on Broadway, Charlie is delighted to be back, where it all began.
Theatre-mad Bobby Child is torn between his show-business dreams and his rich, demanding New York fiancée and rich, demanding New York mother who want him to run the family bank. On his mother’s insistence, he reluctantly heads west for the bygone mining town of Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a mortgage. There he finds the mortgage in question is on a dilapidated Victorian theatre and the owner’s daughter Polly is the girl of his dreams. Desperate to prove his good faith and win her love, Bobby lights on the idea of putting on a show – complete with glamorous dancers from New York’s Follies – to save the theatre and renew the town.
With wonderful Gershwin songs like I Got Rhythm, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Someone To Watch Over Me, Embraceable Me and They Can’t Take That Away From Me, we are promised a real treat in August.
With a few hours of free time before the show starts you have the opportunity to enjoy the pedestrianised shopping streets of Chichester, its Cathedral or just sit down and relax with a drink and a bite to eat. It always makes for a very enjoyable trip.
For the past 10 years our annual Summer visit to Chichester has sold out. On the last two occasions we have taken two coaches! With this being the 60th Anniversary year of the Chichester Festival Theatre and with such a great show and star on offer, do book early to avoid missing out.
