"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."
"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."
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
