‘Cole Porter songs and tap-dancing sailors, what’s not to love?’ The Hollywood Reporter
All aboard for this saucy and splendid major new production of Cole Porter and P. G. Wodehouse’s classic musical of pure escapism, Anything Goes. Featuring a joyful, gold-plated score of theatre’s most memorable standards, including ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, ‘You’re the Top’, ‘It’s De-Lovely!’ and Anything Goes, with a 50 strong company featuring a full-sized live orchestra and 15 tap- dancing sailors, it’s everything you want a big Broadway musical to be and more!
Making her West End debut is Broadway Royalty Sutton Foster, the internationally renowned star is reprising her Tony-Award winning role as the delectable Reno Sweeney, from the 2011 Broadway production. During her dazzling stage career, Foster has won two Tony-Awards, two Drama Desk Awards and three Outer Critics Circle Awards. Foster will be joined by three-time Olivier Award and Tony-Award winner Robert Lindsay, as Moonface Martin. Lindsay has become a household name with British audiences over the years, including starring in the hugely successful BBC sitcom My Family.
Joining them in this all-star line-up, are acting royalty and Evening Standard Theatre Award-winner Felicity Kendal (The Good Life / Much Ado About Nothing) as Evangeline Harcourt and much-beloved leading West End Legend Gary Wilmot (Chicago / Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Elisha Whitney.
It’s Bon Voyage on the SS American but it’s not all smooth sailing as they head out to sea; etiquette is cast-off through the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find true love. Their journey proves that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing and dancing sailors, a comical disguise, a farcical blackmail, delightful double-entendres, and some timeless good fun!
