The show premiered on Broadway in 1930 and was the first musical to feature the songwriting team of the Gershwin brothers. The plot of "Girl Crazy" revolves around a young playboy named Danny Churchill who is sent to a boarding school in Arizona to forget his romantic troubles. There, he falls in love with the local postmistress, Molly Gray, and decides to stay and help save the financially struggling school from closure. Along the way, they encounter a variety of colorful characters, including cowboys, socialites, and Native Americans. The show features a number of classic Gershwin songs, including "I Got Rhythm," "Embraceable You," and "But Not for Me." It was noted for its lively dance numbers and its blend of traditional musical theatre with Western themes and humor.
