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 vessel 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 everyone from Frank Sinatra to Louis Armstrong and Barbra Streisand. With such an immortal repertoire, it’s little wonder why the production was revived in 2011, going on to win the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical. Now on its national tour, the revival features music-theatre and opera veteran Tracy Bidleman in the role of Evangeline Harcourt, Hope’s overbearing mother.

The Whiting

It would be hard to think of The Whiting as anything less than opulent. Before audiences grab one of the theater's 2,043 seats, they pass through a lobby where a golden sphere hangs suspended. That sphere, completed a year after the theater's founding in 1967, is made up of 675 gold-plated steel branches, stretching 7 feet in diameter, and is valued at $5 million. It's a fitting tribute to the venue's namesake: James H. Whiting, an early pioneer of the auto industry. Although its gold dulled over time—along with the rest of the theater—a renovation in 1999 helped it sparkle once again and continue drawing passersby into its gravitation field.
