BWW TV: Tracy Bidleman Chats ANYTHING GOES Tour; and Highlights!

On Tuesday, ANYTHING GOES opened the final stop on its National Tour at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts; you can check out my review here. After Opning Night, I sat down with Tracy Bidleman, who plays Evangeline Harcourt, to discuss about what makes this show feel-good show such an enduring classic. Check out our chat and show highlights in the video below!

Emma Stratton stars as Reno Sweeney with Brian Krinsky as Billy Crocker. The principal cast also includes Bidleman as Mrs. Evangeline Harcourt, Rachelle Rose Clark as Hope Harcourt, Michael R. Douglass as Elisha Whitney, Richard Lindenfelzer as Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, Mychal Phillips as Erma, and Dennis Setteducati as Moonface Martin.

Winner of the 2011 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, ANYTHING GOES will sail under the direction of Sean McKnight and Jennifer Savelli. McKnight and Savelli will recreate the original direction and choreography byKathleen Marshall, who won the 2011 Tony Award for Best Choreography. 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!"

ANYTHING GOES features music and lyrics by Cole Porter; original book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse; and new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman.

The creative team includes music direction by Robbie Cowan with additional orchestrations by Bill Elliot, original scenic design by Derek McLane coordinated by James Kronzer, original costumes by Martin Pakledinaz coordinated by Jimm Halliday, lighting design by Anthony Pearson and sound design by David Bullard.
