MUSICAL-COMEDY JOY! -New York Times

OVERVIEW

Anything Goes asks its audience to get aboard for this saucy and splendid new production of one of the greatest musicals in Broadway history. Winner of three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, Cole Porter’s classic stars Stephanie J. Block (Wicked) and Tony Award and Academy Award winner Joel Grey (Cabaret, Wicked), and is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall (Grease), who won the 2011 Tony Award for Best Choreography.

As the S.S. American heads out to sea, two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love aboard a hilarious ship filled with a crew of singing and dancing sailors, exotic disguises, some good old-fashioned blackmail and one of musical theatre’s most memorable scores, featuring such classics as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s De-lovely,” and of course, “Anything Goes.”
