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, it’s everything you want a big Broadway musical to be and more!
Broadway star Rachel York (Head Over Heels, Victor/Victoria) will reprise her acclaimed portrayal of Reno Sweeney (first performance 12 October) and Tony and Olivier nominee Haydn Gwynne (Billy Elliot – West End and Broadway, Camilla in Channel 4’s The Windsors) will play Evangeline Harcourt (first performance 19 October). They will join Tony, Olivier & BAFTA Award Winner Robert Lindsay (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Moonface Martin and musical actor Gary Wilmot (Chicago) as Elisha Whitney who have been wowing audience since the show opened in July
It’s Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it’s not all smooth sailing as they head out to sea; etiquette is castoff 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!
