Now entering its fourth decade of presenting Broadway musicals, New Westminster’s Royal City Musical Theatre will present the romantic comedy Crazy For You in its 31st season. The show will star husband and wife team Todd and Rabecca Talbot.
In Crazy For You, stage-struck Bobby Child works as a banker but has the desire to be a singer/dancer on Broadway and spends his off hours practicing dance routines. Sent to Nevada to foreclose on a theatre, he falls for postmistress Polly Baker, whose father happens to own the beautiful but decaying Gaiety Theatre. Bobby concocts a scheme to bring together New York City Follies Girls with a cast of local rundown cowboys with latent musical talent to put on a show and save the theatre.
In this edition of Before The Curtain Goes Up, Vancouver Presents contributor David C Jones speaks with Todd and Rabecca to learn more.
Royal City Musical Theatre presents Crazy For You at Massey Theatre (735 8th Ave, New Westminster) from April 27 – May 14. Visit royalcitymusicaltheatre.com for tickets and information.
