Marshall promises an entirely reimagined take on her hit 2011 Broadway production of the Cole Porter classic "tailor made" for her stars.

She said, "I'm hoping that they'll get their tap shoes on!"

Additional casting is currently underway with rehearsals set to begin in March.

The creative team for the show includes Tony-winning set designer Derek McLane, lighting designer Neil Austin, sound designer Simon Baker, and music supervisor Stephen Ridley.

In 2011, Marshall's acclaimed Broadway revival of the musical picked up three Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Choreography for Marshall, five Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical and Outstanding Choreographer of a Musical and Outstanding Set Design for Derek McLane, and four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, Outstanding Choreographer of a Musical.

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 "You're the Top," "Blow, Gabriel, Blow," "It's De-Lovely," "I Get A Kick Out of You," and "Anything Goes."
