George and Ira Gershwin’s hit musical comedy is packed full of classic songs, and the 2011 version delighted and wowed audiences. The creative team from the multi-award winning production of Hello, Dolly! reunited, including director Timothy Sheader, choreographer Stephen Mear and designer Peter McKintosh, with Into the Woods musical supervisor, Gareth Valentine. Crazy for You, received more five star reviews than any other musical in 2011, and transferred directly into West End.
