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.

See it if you like confection, spectacle, and seeing Broadway icons do what they do best.

Don't see it if you want your theater to have any weight or heft, if you want to think, if you're not interested in mindless escapism.
