With its Gershwin score and book by Tony-nominee Ken Ludwig ("Lend Me a Tenor"), "Crazy For You" has been a crowd-pleaser since its acclaimed Broadway debut in 1992. It's the story of a wealthy 1930s playboy who's determined to become a professional dancer. And no one -- not even his mother -- is going to keep him from pursuing his dream. Along the way, there's plenty of comedy, romance, mistaken identities and plot twists in the mix. Featuring a score that includes such Ira and George Gershwin classics as "I Got Rhythm," "Embraceable You," "Someone to Watch Over Me" and many more, "Crazy For You" earned three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, for its original New York run.

Playwright Alfred Uhry brilliantly mined his Atlanta Jewish upbringing for his Pulitzer and Oscar-winning "Driving Miss Daisy", and he digs into it again for "The Last Night of Ballyhoo", resulting in the same successful mix of thought-provoking drama and laughter, with a touch of romance.

It's hard to imagine a world without Hamlet, Falstaff, Romeo, Juliet or any of the indelible characters and stories created by William Shakespeare -- but were it not for the diligent work of a few of The Bard's friends and contemporaries, we'd be living in that world today. Set just after Shakespeare's death in the early 17th century, "The Book of Will" is the story of two of his actors rushing to gather and publish all of his works before they're lost to time. But with the original scripts scattered all over London, collecting them all is going to be a caper that's Shakespearean in scope. This heartfelt and hilarious play, inspired by the true story behind Shakespeare's "First Folio", comes to the Round House Theatre in Bethesda. [less-]
