Roundabout Theatre Company's Anything Goes

Young Wall Street broker Billy Crocker arrives at the docks to bid adieu to his boss Elisha J. Whitney and nightclub singer Reno Sweeney as they board the London-bound S.S. American. For the second time, though, Billy unexpectedly crosses paths with the beautiful Hope Harcourt, whom he rode in a taxi with earlier. Determined to win her away from her fiancé, the stuffy Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, Billy gets the bright idea to stow away on the ship. Through a series of schemes concocted by Reno and hapless gangster “Moonface” Martin, Billy may just woo his lady love before the ship reaches London, or he may end up in the brig.

With an original 1934 songbook constructed by beloved composer Cole Porter, Anything Goes introduced a slew of tunes still recognizable to this day. The jaunty score barrels through such standbys as “I Get a Kick Out of You” and “You’re the Top”—songs that have been recorded several times over by stars such artists as Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, and Barbra Streisand. The show’s numerous revivals have also seen the addition of songs from Cole Porter’s other works, such as “It’s De-Lovely” from Red, Hot and Blue and “Let’s Step Out” from Fifty Million Frenchmen.

Roundabout Theatre Company's revival seems to have found the right mix. The Toronto Star described it as a "treasure trove of delights," and the judges of the Tony Awards seem to agree—they crowned the production with three awards in 2011, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Choreography. Yet this success is hardly surprising. The touring cast is a who's-who of Broadway stars featuring Rachel York as the sultry Reno Sweeney and Fred Applegate as the hapless "Moonface" Martin. And the staging wows just as a much as the intricate choreography, setting tap numbers on a three-level cruise-ship deck and an art-deco club without making audiences car pool from one location to the next.
