Anything Goes: When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love... proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.
The score features such classics as 'You're the Top,' 'Blow, Gabriel, Blow,' 'It's De-Lovely,' 'I Get A Kick Out of You,' and 'Anything Goes.'
The design team for this new revival of Anything Goes includes Derek McLane (Sets), Martin Pakledinaz (Costumes) and Peter Kaczorowski (Lights).
Anything Goes premiered on Broadway on 21 Nov 1934 at the Alvin Theatre, starring Ethel Merman, directed by Howard Lindsay and choreographed by Robert Alton.
The first Broadway revival of Anything Goes premiered on Broadway on 19 Oct 1987 at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre and won the Tony Award for best revival. It starred Patti LuPone, with direction by Jerry Zaks and choreographed by Michael Smuin.
