Crazy for You Youth Review 3

★★★☆☆   A Gersh-winning performance:

Carried by a multitalented cast and top-notch comedic timing, the Watermill Theatre’s Production of Crazy for You delivers plenty of laughs for the whole family, but lacks emotional intelligence.

Crazy for You Youth Review 1

Crazy for You Youth Review 1

★★★☆☆   Timeless yet modern:

Terrifically timed tapping toes and the pipes to deliver incredible vocals retell a love story from the Wild West, but what seems to be missing is true character development.

Crazy for You

Crazy for You

★★★☆☆    Song and dance:

Big tap dance routines and even bigger set pieces dominate the Watermill Theatre’s touring production of Crazy for You at the Playhouse until Saturday, but at the expense of the chemistry in the big romances of the show.

Footloose

Footloose

★★★☆☆    Nostalgic:

There are some decidedly impressive production numbers in the Bohemians’ production of Footloose at the King’s. Add in some excellent singing and you have a show that will please a lot of people with fond memories of the 1980s.
