About Anything Goes

‘Cole Porter songs and tap-dancing sailors, what’s not to love?’ The Hollywood  Reporter 

All aboard for this saucy and splendid major new production of Cole Porter and  P. G. Wodehouse’s classic musical of pure escapism, Anything  Goes. Featuring a joyful, gold-plated score of theatre’s most memorable  standards, including ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, ‘You’re the Top’, ‘It’s De Lovely!’ and Anything Goes, it’s everything you want a big Broadway musical  to be and more! 

Making her West End debut is the award-winning and internationally renowned  American actress, comedian and singer, Megan Mullally as the  delectable Reno Sweeney. Mullally, won hearts, as well as three SAG awards,  two Emmy awards and four Golden-Globe Nominations, for her iconic role as  Karen Walker in the hit TV sitcom Will & Grace. Mullally will be joined by three time Olivier Award and Tony-Award winner Robert Lindsay, as Moonface  Martin. Lindsay has become a household name with British audiences over the  years, including starring in the hugely successful BBC sitcom My Family. 

Joining them in this all-star line-up, are acting royalty and Evening Standard  Theatre Award-winner Felicity Kendal (The Good Life / Much Ado About  Nothing) as Evangeline Harcourt and much-beloved leading West End Legend  Gary Wilmot (Chicago / Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Elisha Whitney. 

Its Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it’s not all smooth sailing as they head  out to sea; etiquette is castoff through the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off  on the course to find true love. Their journey proves that sometimes destiny  needs a little help from a crew of singing and dancing sailors, a comical  disguise, a farcical blackmail, delightful double-entendres, and some timeless  good fun!
