Reviews - Crazy For You

Mooo-ve Over Broadway

By The Shropshire Star

Shrewsbury-based amateur theatre group Mad Cow Productions last night brought the house down at Theatre Severn with an “udderly” dazzling performance of the Gershwin musical Crazy for You.
They brought America’s Wild West to Shrewsbury’s west with this glamorous and uber-energetic show. And it was amateur theatre at its very best.

It had everything you would expect from a Broadway musical – slick, colourful costumes, stunning scenery, fabulous props and even a live orchestra.

The cast gave their all and delivered thoroughly professional performances - and looked like they thoroughly enjoyed doing so.

Theo Millward and Georgie Wright were perfectly cast in the lead roles of Bobby Child and Polly Baker.

You would never know that it was talented Georgie’s first lead role – no first-night nerves for her – or that she is actually studying for her A-levels. Cowboy hats off to them!

It’s hard to believe the “herd” could outdo last year’s fabulous production of Kiss Me Kate. But they did – with cow bells on.

And perfect timing too for Mad Cow Productions is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

When it comes to putting on a show, Mad Cow Director Alex Hinton and choreographer Lisa Lowarch have certainly got the Midas touch.

They, and their cast, have put their heart and souls over the last six months into this production - and it shows. This is some moo-sical.

So go on, get your ticket and get down to Deadrock, Nevada. They deserve your support.
