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.
The Watermill has cast the show perfectly, with Tom Chambers and Caroline Sheen leading the Crazy For You company.
Southwark Playhouse’s recreation of Xanadu is a fabulous, over-the-top, well-staged entertaining evening. Everybody leaves smiling and the enthusiasm is genuinely deserved.
