Anything Goes - 2011 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$87 – $137

ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid new production of Cole Porter's musical romp across the Atlantic! 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. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theater's most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick out of You,” “You're the Top,“ “It's De-lovely,” and of course, “Anything Goes.”



Running Time:

2 hours 45 minutes

Featured Reviews For Anything Goes


'Anything Goes,' at Roundabout Theatre - Newsday
Ethel Merman used to say that "Anything Goes" was about "a girl on a boat." And that's pretty much the whole deal, except for the other girls, the guys and the fact that the boat is a deco ocean liner stocked with nonstop Cole Porter standards, standard-issue mistaken-identity convolutions and the usual bunch of '30s musical-comedy mugs...Bottom Line: By-the-numbers revival, but the numbers are prime.

Anything Goes - Variety
Why, one wonders, should Roundabout see fit to trot out "Anything Goes," the frequently produced 1934 musical chestnut? Turns out it has a compelling reason: Sutton Foster. She doesn't just deliver those Cole Porter hits, she knocks 'em out of the park. Joel Grey gives his happiest performance in years as Public Enemy #13, and director-choreographer Kathleen Marshall has a field day, outdoing herself with several rousing dance numbers. This new "Anything Goes" is a daffy, shipshape romp.
