University of Memphis, Mainstage
When the locals in a small Russian hamlet learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for a surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the whole village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. Witty, smart and wildly satirical, this timely and spirited adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's classic play exposes the corruption of a provincial town with biting hilarity.

Anything Goes in Broadway ANYTHING GOES
Orpheum Theatre
ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid production of Roundabout Theatre Company's ANYTHING GOES, winner of three 2011 Tony® Awards including Best Musical Revival and Choreography! One of the greatest musicals in theater history, Cole Porter's first-class musical comedy is sailing to [CITY], while it continues a triumphant run on Broadway where The New York Times calls it "MUSICAL-COMEDY JOY" and USA Today hails it as "GLORIOUS and EXHUBERANT!" When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed 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. Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theater's most memorable standards, including "I Get a Kick Out of You," "You're the Top," and of course, "Anything Goes." Don't miss what the AP exclaims as, "So DELIGHTFUL, So DELICIOUS, So DE-LOVELY!"
