Siguenza reinvents this classic with satirical genius worthy of Moliere. Don Aragon is a Spanish landowner in Alta California on the eve of the U.S. annexation. He rules over his family with the will of a conquistador, but sadly, Don Aragon suffers great anxiety over the immanent U.S. invasion. When his unscrupulous doctor dubs the illness ‘Manifest Destinitis’, Don Aragon’s paranoid antics upset his grip on a rebellious household. With an outrageous satirical mixture of medicine and history, Siguenza’s prescription of laughter and lessons might do wonders for what ails us.

A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, Crazy For You tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada,
to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theatre owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker,
so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes
from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It” and

1992, starring Harry Groener and Jodi Benson. The show ran for four years, playing for 1,622 performances.
