Stopped by Harrison High School yesterday to catch a bit of rehearsals for “Crazy for You,” which runs March 14 to 17. I found musical director Lynn Fusco at the piano and director-choreographer Deb Toteda at the production table, mike in hand, watching the action as set pieces were introduced into the mix.
Adding the set can make for a hectic rehearsal, but when the kids went into “I Got Rhythm,” they were on their toes, full of energy and simply captivating. Halle Mastroberardino dances confidently and with little seeming effort and Lucas Pettinato and Chris Morris—as Bobby Child and Bela Zangler—have the comedy chops their parts require.
Pencil this one in. Looks like a whole lot of fun.
