Tom Chambers as Bobby Child
Now, we all knew that Tom Chambers could act and dance, but I didn’t know how well he could sing or how funny he was. His physical comedy is brilliant and one of my favourite moments was when Bobby was drunk and he couldn’t find the stairs to get down from the balcony so he slowly lowers himself down by a rope which doesn’t sound very funny or entertaining but it really was!
Caroline Flack as Irene Roth
I was a little disappointed with how little Caroline was actually in the show. She had one song and was only in a few scenes and I was very surprised that she didn’t have a dance number because she was so good on Strictly. It just felt a little bit of a waste not to include her dancing talents in a show that had so much dancing in it. BUT, she was very funny as the domineering ex-fiance of Bobby and she had a very good voice – I could definitely see her in a leading role in the future!
Charlotte Wakefield as Polly Baker
Crazy for You featured one of the most talented casts I’ve ever seen who not only sing, dance and act but also act as the orchestra by playing their instruments on stage which was something I’d never seen before. The show was packed with music by the Gershwin Brothers with hits including I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me and Nice Work if You Can Get It and the costumes of Irene and the Follies Girls were amazing! Who could ask for anything more?
The show is touring into (I think) into March/April 2018 so I would definitely recommend getting tickets if it’s coming to your town/city! If you liked this post, you might also like my other reviews which you can find here.
