Anything Goes

Written By: Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse Music & Lyrics By: Cole Porter Directed By: Jeff Woerpel Musical Director: Tom Knoll
The action takes place on the SS American, sailing from New York to England. On board are the beautiful American heiress Hope Harcourt, her English fiance Sir Evelyn Oakleigh and Hope's mother. Stowing away on board is Billy Crocker, a young admirer of Hope's who can't believe she would really marry the silly Sir Evelyn and determines to try and stop her. Public Enemy Number Thirteen, with his moll Erma, is also along for the ride and he passes on to Billy the passport and ticket of a gangster friend of his who didn't catch the boat. This leads to unwelcome complications for Billy as he and the Public Enemy have to keep changing disguises to avoid arrest. Keeping the steam at boiling point in the ship's engine room and working the stabilisers overtime is sexy, incandescent Reno Sweeney, ex-evangelist and current night club singer. With her help all the shipboard disasters are averted and all the romances sorted out - including her own. This show, widely regarded as the very best of Cole Porter, shows off all the consummate skills of a master, right at the very pinnacle of his powers. Songs Include: "It's Delovely"; "You're The Top"; "I Get a Kick Out of You"; "Blow, Gabriel, Blow"; "Friendship"; "Anything Goes" Cast:
