Anything Goes description

Anything Goes – The dazzling Cole Porter classic

Anything goes on board the SS America. This gorgeous musical is perfect for our times, a classic story you can escape into for a couple of delicious hours of old-school musical pleasure. You can thank Cole Porter and P. G Wodehouse for this one, which made 1934 a lot more fun for Americans on Broadway, bringing cheer to a world still ravaged by the first world war and heading for a second. It's lovely, and it's yours for 2021.

The amazing Emmy-Award winning Megan Mullally plus the supremely talented Tony and Olivier Award-winning Robert Lindsay star in this star-studded new production of the Cole Porter and P. G Wodehouse classic, fresh from the golden age of musicals. It's called Anything Goes, and it's quite simply spectacular. No wonder it's a multi-Tony award winner.

What's the plot?

Bon Voyage, courtesy of the magnificent ship the S.S America. Sadly the sailing isn't smooth as the ship heads for the horizon. When a couple of less-than-likely pairs set on a tricky course heading for true love, everyday etiquette flies out of the window... or maybe we should say 'out of the porthole'!

The journey is a rocky one, proving that destiny isn't always enough. Now and again fate needs a firm helping hand. This time around that helping hand is delivered by an entire crew of singing and dancing sailors, one hilarious disguise, some truly farcical blackmail, and oodles of timeless musical fun. The costumes, the set, the music, as you'd expect from a stage musical like this, are all totally spectacular.

Megan Mullally of TV's Will & Grace fame makes her West End debut as Reno Sweeney, joined by one of our national treasures, the brilliant Robert Lindsay, playing Moonface Martin.

Kathleen Marshall’s Tony-Award winning creative staging of this show made a massive splash on Broadway, and the fun continues. It's a truly stunning production with a joyous musical score to match, including the memorable ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, 'It's De-Lovely' and ‘You’re the Top’. It's no surprise this is being tipped as the musical of 2021. And no surprise the show has been revived so many times since 1934.

Elaine Paige, Bernard Cribbins, Caroline O'Connor, Sutton Foster and Joel Grey have all played in previous productions. There was a smash hit revival from Sheffield Theatres in 2015, and the story has been adapted for cinema twice, both in 1988 and 2011. The creative team comprises of set designer Derek McLane, lighting designer Neil Austin, sound designer Simon Baker and musical supervisor Stephen Ridley.

It's colourful and vivid. It's fantastic fun, light-hearted, highly entertaining and packed with glamour. If you only see one classic stage musical in 2021, make it this one!

Who is this show for?

This delicious, delightful, de-lovely musical is full of wicked double-entendres. The age recommendation will be announced soon.
