Crazy For You (2010) – What’s On Stage

BOST present the creme-de-la-creme of local talent in their latest production.  Stepping back to the ’30s, the large ensemble impressively combines song, drama and eclectic styles of dance, to capture the essence of the era.  Accents and facial expressions are extremely believable, especially those of Gareth Casey Morris (Bella Zangler), whose grasp of declamatory techniques is strong.  Linzi Stefanov (Polly Baker) never fails in making you smile, her beautiful tone of voice in the songs “Someone To Watch Over Me” and “But Not For Me”  being an absolute joy to listen to.  The rapport between Simmons and Morris in “What Causes That” is thoroughly entertaining, the direction of Elsie Kelly working wonders in this scene.  Bouncing off each other’s behaviour so humorously would not be out of place in a professional show.  BOST promises a night of stunning live music, plenty of feel good moments, beautiful costumes and scenery – really, who could ask for anything more!
