Presse : "When future historians try to find the exact moment at which Broadway finally rose up to grab the musical back from the British, they just may conclude that the revolution began last night. The shot was fired at the Shubert Theater, where a riotously entertaining show called Crazy for You uncorked the American musical's classic blend of music, laughter, dancing, sentiment and showmanship with a freshness and confidence rarely seen during the Cats decade. The miracle has been worked here most ingeniously, though not exclusively, by an extraordinary choreographer named Susan Stroman and the playwright Ken Ludwig." Frank Rich, New York Times

"It is heaven on earth. Everything an American musical comedy should be." The New Yorker

"It's no easy task writing a new book for a half a dozen of the best songs ever written for Broadway, and keeping the style of the song-writers, especially when they happen to be named George and Ira Gerwhin, but that's just what Lend Me A Tenor's Ken Ludwig has done with his newest, Crazy For You, the absolutely smashing, razzle-dazzle musical which opened Wednesday night at the Shubert Theater." CBS-Radio

"The brass and the gold of Broadway are back! Ludwig excels in wonderful vaudeville put-down and shows off his neat timing for comedy. Crazy For You will doubtless have audiences crazy for it through a blissfully indefinite future." The New York Post

"An explosion of joy! Something scrumptious indeed. Things are looking up!" The New York Daily News

"A firecracker of a show! A fizzy new libretto by Ken Ludwig and the choreography of your dreams by Susan Stroman." USA Today

"This show has enough energy to light up Broadway for a decade, and that's how long it may run. Crazy For You is a knockout smash hit." WNYW-New York

"Ken Ludwig delivers surprise after surprise. He has written one of the funniest shows around." The Philadelphia Enquirer

"A Great Broadway Musical! A show to take your kids to. … A show friends come in from out-of-town just to see!" WABC-TV

"Pure Joy! The concept is brilliant." Newsweek

"A knockout smash hit! Great music, witty lyrics … and a nonstop sense of fun." WNYW-TV

"Wow! What at show! It is absolutely fabulous!" WWOR-TV

"Broadway's newest hit! It's terrific!" NBC-TV

"Frantically funny!" Malden Observer

"From screwball start to dreamy finish, "Crazy for You" practically floats over the Kirkwood stage. Under the direction of Michael Hamilton, it makes a delicious close to Stages' 2007 season." Judy Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
