The Other Richard

A high-energy tour with plenty of high kicks and an edge of glamour is coming to Bristol Hippodrome.

Crazy For You is a feel-good musical which tells the love story of Bobby, the son of a wealthy New York banking family, and Polly, the daughter of a failing theatre-owner.

Mistaken identities, heartbreak, happiness and a wealth of memorable tunes, including I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Embraceable You all feature in this celebration of Broadway musicals.

This production features two Strictly Come Dancing winners, as Tom Chambers who won the show in 2008 will play Bobby, and Caroline Flack who won the 12th season in 2014 will play Irene – his fiancée of five years.

Flack was trained in musical theatre before she turned her hand at TV presenting, but now she is returning to the stage once more.

Charlotte Wakefield will play Bobby’s one true love, however, when she takes on the role of Polly.

Wakefield has starred in The Sound Of Music, Mamma Mia! and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Crazy For You has music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin, and it was originally produced on Broadway.

It will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from October 10-14, with performances at 7.30pm each evening and 2.30pm on October 11, 12 and 14.

Tickets, priced £22.90-51.90, are available online via or by calling 08448 717627.
