Anything Goes Returns to Broadway This Spring
A saucy and splendid new production of Anything Goes, Cole Porter’s musical romp across the Atlantic, returns to Broadway this spring when it opens on April 7 in New York at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. The Roundabout Theatre Company production stars Tony Award® winner Sutton Foster as “Reno Sweeney” and Tony® and Academy Award® winner Joel Grey as “Moonface Martin.”
Anything Goes will be the latest addition to The Broadway Collection, a group of new and classic Broadway musicals selected for their unparalleled popularity with international audiences. Tickets will be available through The Broadway Collection’s international partners.
When the S.S. American sails out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love. They prove that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theater’s most memorable standards, including “You’re the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get A Kick Out of You,” and “Anything Goes.”
Anything Goes is directed and choreographed by Tony Award® winner Kathleen Marshall. The cast also features Colin Donnell as “Billy Crocker”, Adam Godley as “Lord Evelyn Oakleigh,” Laura Osnes as “Hope Harcourt,” Jessica Stone as “Erma,” Walter Charles as “Captain,” Robert Creighton as “Purser,” Andrew Cao as “Luke,” Raymond J. Lee as “John,” with John McMartin as “Elisha Whitney” and Jessica Walter as “Evangeline Harcourt.”
Anything Goes features music & lyrics by Cole Porter, original book by P.G. Wodehouse and Guy Bolton, and Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, and new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman.
