We have released our latest episode of The Show People Podcast in memory of Daniel ‘Dani’ Bolton (1990 – 2018). Thank you to everyone who sent in their beautiful stories about Dani Bolton.
In their latest touring production, Ken Ludwig’s musical comedy, Crazy For You, Paul Hart and the Watermill Theatre have enhanced a much-loved classic with flights of fanciful footwork and an electric cast of actor-musicians.
There’s a lot to enjoy in this production of Crazy for You which brings a great deal of talent to the stage and shows it off well. It’s just that it gets caught up in the fiddly bits of the story when bigger, bolder strokes could serve the plot better.
We caught up with television and theatre performer Claire Sweeney as she prepared to take on the role of Irene Roth in the UK tour of Crazy For You, alongside Casualty and Strictly Come Dancing star Tom Chambers and Olivier Award nominee Charlotte Wakefield.
Lots of different things opening across the country in March. In London there are a lot of Fringe and Off West End productions coming your way.
Perfectly cast as Bobby, Tom Chambers is a charming leading man and plays this giddy, amusing character with enthusiasm
Jamie Wilson and Gavin Kalin are delighted to announce that Claire Sweeney will take over the role of ‘Irene’ in the national tour of the Watermill Theatre’s acclaimed production of Crazy For You. Claire joins Tom Chambers who plays ‘Bobby’ and Charlotte Wakefield who plays ‘Polly’ from 16 January 2018 at the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury.
The Watermill has cast the show perfectly, with Tom Chambers and Caroline Sheen leading the Crazy For You company.
