NODA Review: Crazy for You
Kidderminster Operatic and Dramatic Society
Crazy for You
Director: Nigel Preece
Musical Director: Sue Wyer
Choreographer: Wendy Richards
Venue: Rose Theatre, Kidderminster
So full of wonderfully tuneful Gershwin music all very well sung by principals and chorus. Katherine Knight, “Polly” was excellent in the role and her singing a delight. I particularly enjoyed ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’. Julian Richards, “Bobby” also has a fine voice and his solo’s and duets with “Polly” were much enjoyed. The experience of Jill Parmenter, “Irene”, and Pat Scully, “Lottie”, produced performances much better than the script deserves and Doug Forrester, “Zangler”, was a perfect match with “Bobby”. Follies Girls, chorus, and orchestra helped the show go with a swing. The enthusiastic applause was well merited.
