The annual summer musical is fast approaching, so we caught up with cast and creative team to talk about our production of the Tony-award winning Gershwin classic Crazy For You. Cast members Lucie Fletcher and Luke Thallon discuss what it's like to end their time at Guildhall on such a showstopper and perform alongside Guildhall singers, as well as what it's like know this is their final performance as students here. Musical Director Michael Haslam and Choreographer Ewan Jones also join us to discuss the creative process and the challenges and joy of bringing such a large and well-known musical to the stage. Crazy For You runs from 4-12 July in the Silk Street Theatre. Tickets are available from the Barbican Box Office (http://www.barbican.org.uk/theatre/event-detail.asp?ID=21271).
