National Tour of ANYTHING GOES to Prep in Cleveland
ANYTHING GOES, which received the 2011 Tony Award for a winning revival, will start its national tour on October 2 after a four-week rehearsal period in Cleveland. The Cole Porter 1934 musical will be staged by director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall.
The touring production will star Rachel York as Reno Sweeney. The dynamic York played Fantine in LES MISERABLES on Broadway, and Marguerite in the second Broadway version of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL. Her other Broadway productions include CITY OF ANGELS, Victor VictorIA, SLY FOX and DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS.
In a one-on-one interview, York, who declares that she is a perfectionist, finds that touring, and living out of suitcase is going to be a challenge as she is a new mother and will be bringing her child on the tour. She finds that every opening night in each city is a major challenge. The different audiences and new venues presents an interesting challenge.
