Funny, Fluffy, Entertaining, Dated, Ambitious

See it if you love an old-fashioned silly romp w/great tunes & even better dancing. I didn’t care how the goings on turned out but enjoyed the ride.

Don't see it if you need more substance than silliness and flash.

Funny, Indulgent, Dated, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if you love a classic Broadway show. It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely! It’s a camp Cole Porter classic full of breathtaking tap.

Don't see it if You’re not a fan of old school musicals with dated themes.

The Times (UK)
August 5th, 2022

"If I have any reservations it’s that the terrific band occasionally drowns out Porter’s deft wordplay, and after the dazzling pace of the first half there’s a slight loss of momentum in the second. But, honestly, those are quibbles. This production is a dream."

London Theatre

"There’s the odd contemporary parallel, like the satire of our obsession with celebrity, but, just like when it was first staged during the Depression, this is really about stepping into another world and leaving our troubles behind. Quite simply: it’s the top."

For a previous production

Imported Broadway star Sutton Foster effortlessly steals every scene as Reno with a devastating mix of raw talent ... and sheer, gutbusting effort. They don’t make ’em like this anymore ... but it feels fresh.

For a previous production

Kathleen Marshall’s direction and choreography are supremely polished. The best songs and the biggest moments belong to Reno Sweeney, and [Sutton] Foster knocks them dead. A magnificent London debut.

For a previous production

Director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall ... crams the two-hour ride with cheesy, feel-good moments: this is vintage stage magic at its most explosively joyous.

The Guardian (UK)
August 5th, 2021
For a previous production

Director Marshall keeps a tight ship, as it were, the neat set-ups and unnecessary complications of the plot weightlessly executed. Anything Goes revels in how ridiculous it is, and the audience does too. This is one to get drunk on, hangover-free.

The Guardian (UK)
August 8th, 2021
For a previous production

[The show is] held together by a fabulous central performance from the American star Sutton Foster as Reno Sweeney. Throughout the show, there is a demob-happy feeling – in cast and audience. It is exactly what the captain ordered.
