Anything Goes

I’ll add my endorsement to that of the Tony voters:  Anything Goes is a terrific musical.  It’s loads of fun and packed with terrific dancing, smashing costumes, hilarious performances and music by Cole Porter—“who could ask for anything more?” (Gershwin).   Sutton Foster and Joel Grey provide the masterful performances you hope to see on Broadway.  Sutton Foster won the Tony this year for Best Actress in a Musical for Anything Goes.

Many of the songs will probably be known to you as this engaging music has been around since the 1930’s and seems to have entered the American cultural consciousness for all time:  “It’s De-lovely,” “I Get a Kick out of You,” “You’re the Top” and, of course, “Anything Goes,” which I think has a tune that can wreck your day with its power to cling!

Anything Goes is madcap but not moronic.  It’s a genuinely entertaining farce that remains compelling over 75 years after its first production.  The Tony voters felt it deserved to win Best Revival of a Musical and I humbly agree.
