What the popular press said...

"Who needs a brass section when you’ve got Sutton Foster? As the nightclub evangelist Reno Sweeney in the zesty new revival of 'Anything Goes,' ..., Ms. Foster has the voice of a trumpet and a big, gleaming presence that floods the house."
Ben Brantley for NY Times

"It's as cool and intoxicating as a fresh ocean breeze... Book passage on 'Anything Goes,' and you'll be traveling first-class."
Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

"A moment of pure, old-school magic."
Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"With her eyes constantly darting around as if unsure of her place on the stage, Foster seems uncharacteristically out of sync both physically and vocally with her partners."
Jeremy Gerald for Bloomberg

"What can you say about perfection? Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of 'Anything Goes' is such a giddy, goofy, giggly experience, it's almost impossible to describe."
David Sheward for Back Stage

"Joyful and entertaining."
Robert Feldberg for The Record

"Is as "delovely" as it gets."
Roma Torre for NY1

"An enjoyable cruise to musical comedy heaven."
Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

"This gorgeously sung, buoyantly staged show is bliss."
David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"The well-remembered LCT staging was sleekly stylish and stunningly sophisticated; this one is less so, but -- thanks in great part to Foster and Marshall -- it's funnier, giddier and more lovable. "
Steven Suskin for Variety
