Babirra’s performance of Crazy for You was terrific. As one description put it, George Gershwin’s musical is “high-energy, all-singing, all-dancing”, and Babirra certainly got into the spirit of it. It’s quite a long show, with a lot of tap dancing (in one number, in cowboy boots!), but the cast’s energy shone through without a let-up. I am always impressed by the range and depth of talent in Babirra’s productions which describes itself as a “non-professional company”.
The costumes, too, were very good, with lots of quick changes, and the sets exploited the differences between New York and Nevada to good effect.
A great night!
