CLAIRE Sweeney is about to do what she does best – play a glamorous vamp on stage – but she says it was the strength of the songs that drew her to the role of Irene Roth in Crazy For You.
“It was the Gershwin score that made me really want to play Irene – anything Gershwin is fantastic,” says the former Brookside actress. “In fact I remember seeing Crazy For You the first time around. The music is just great and I absolutely loved it then and I still love it now!”
Crazy For You will head to the New Victoria Theatre, Woking, from 15-19 May.
