About the show

This production of the classic Cole Porter musical starred Sutton Foster, winning multiple Tonys including Best Leading Actress and Best Revival of a Musical. More…

'Anything Goes' is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.

Great singing, Great dancining, Sutton foster!, Silly book, Fun

Also I'm going back in time and filling in reviews for shows I saw before j... Read more Read less

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You love Cole Porter. Big, flashy musicals with lots of cheese and amazing dancing. It's very typical but very enjoyable.

Don't see it if You aren't a fan of your typical boy/meets girl story with a twist. It's a bit hokey at times. Lots of dancing.
