Background

In 1992, a new Broadway musical was launched with worldwide success. Entitled Crazy For You, it used such elements of the Girl Crazy plot as could be salvaged, while also interpolating not just the acknowledged hits from Girl Crazy, but also numbers from other Gershwin shows. The result was a complete success.
