Based on Roundabout Theatre Company's production, The New York Times calls it "a zesty new revival with knockout numbers and white-hot dancing" while the AP exclaims that it's, "so delightful, so delicious, so de-lovely!"

Filled with such all time-show stopping hits as "Blow Gabriel Blow," "You're The Top," "I Get a Kick Out of You", and, of course, the title song, ANYTHING GOES features music and lyrics by Cole Porter; original book by P.G.

ANYTHING GOES, the 1934 musical comedy about the lovers, liars and clowns on a transatlantic cruise is "a daffy, shipshape romp!" - Variety. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love... proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.
