‘I have sometimes cried at the theatre in the past, but never from happiness – until I saw the musical Anything Goes. I lost it completely. I was just so grateful and relieved.’ The Observer
Featuring a 50 strong cast and ensemble of the finest we have to offer on the London stage (including tap dancing sailors!) and a full-sized live orchestra, this heart-warming and hilarious production of Anything Goes sold out during its last run at the Barbican.
Directed by the multi-award-winning Broadway director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall, this production for London features farcical fun and spectacular show stopping dance routines, all set to Cole Porter’s joyful score, including ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, ‘You’re the Top’ and the show stopping ‘Anything Goes’.
'Made us feel that all was right with the world.'
'Undoubtedly a tonic for our times.'
