42nd Street Moon's production of ANYTHING GOES will be directed by Nick Ishimaru, with Robyn Tribuzi serving as Associate Director/Choreographer and Dave Dobrusky as Music Director.

The press opening will take place on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. Tickets range from $35 - $80 and can be purchased through the Box Office at (415) 255-8207 or online at

"ANYTHING GOES is one of the greatest romantic farce musicals, with star-crossed lovers, mistaken identities, lots of tap-dancing, and one of the greatest collection of Cole Porter songs found in any one show," said Executive Artistic Director Daniel Thomas. "We're fortunate to have a group of artists who can tell this story with today's sensibilities while keeping the fast-paced 1930s comedy style. ANYTHING GOES is lightness, laughter, and love, and a fantastic way to kick off 2023."

Spectacular dance and soaring music burst onto the stage in Cole Porter's award-winning musical. Farcical hijinks abound in this theatrical romp across the Atlantic, in which a young ocean-liner stowaway, Billy Crocker, sets out to win the affections of Hope Harcourt, with plenty of elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors, and good old-fashioned blackmail along the way. A hilarious, heart-warming romantic comedy, featuring such classics as "I Get a Kick Out of You", "You're the Top", and "It's De-Lovely", this musical "exists to put a daffy grin on your face" (The Washington Post) offering an evening of "sheer escape" into a world of side-splitting laughter, toe-tapping music, and plenty of heart.

The cast of ANYTHING GOES will feature Ashley Cowl* as "Reno Sweeney," Matt Skinner as "Billy Crocker," Heather Orth as "Moonface Martin," Jas Cook as "Hope Harcourt," Nick Nakashima* as "Lord Evelyn Oakleigh," Gary Stanford, Jr. as "Elisha Whitney," Juanita Harris as "Mrs. Harcourt," Kyle Arrouzet as "Ensemble," Paige Collazo as "Gangster/Ensemble," Tony Conaty* as "Dance Captain/Ensemble," Roy Eikleberry as "Gangster/Ensemble," Paul Hovannes as "Captain/Ensemble," Catrina Manahan* as "Angel/Ensemble," Renee DeWeese Moran as "Angel/Ensemble," Dustin Riggs as "Ensemble," Jill Smith as "Erma," Katherine Stein* as "Ensemble," and Chloe Wintersteen as "Ensemble."

In addition to Nick Ishimaru, Robyn Tribuzi and Dave Dobrusky, the creative team and production staff of ANYTHING GOES will include Kuo-Hao Lo (Scenic Designer), Lisa Danz (Costume Designer), Sean Keehan (Lighting Designer), Jacqualynn Metcalf (Lead Electrician), Nicole Helfer* (Stage Manager), and Jakob Bernardino* (Assistant Stage Manager).

*Member of Actors' Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers.
