FORT LAUDERDALE — The national tour of Anything Goes, the new Broadway revival of Cole Porter’s timeless classic musical theatre masterpiece, is on stage through May 17 at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts for a limited two week run.
Anything Goes is a 1934 musical comedy about the lovers, liars and clowns on a transatlantic cruise that Variety calls “a daffy, shipshape romp!” 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.
Emma Stratton will star as Reno
Sweeney with Brian Krinsky as Billy Crocker. The principal cast also includes Tracy Bidleman as Mrs. Evangeline Harcourt, Stephen Mark as John, Rachelle Rose Clark as Hope Harcourt, Michael R. Douglass as Elisha Whitney, Roy Flores as Luke, Kenny Francoeur as Purser, Richard Lindenfelzer as Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, Drew Martin as Captain, Mychal Phillips as Erma, and Dennis Setteducati as Moonface Martin.
The ensemble includes Willie Dee, Patrick Heffernan, Jamie Mills, Kaylee Olson, Gabriella Perez, Lexie Plath, Michael Santora, Bryan Seastrom, Katie Wilson Stewart, Annie Wallace, Boe Wank, and Bradley Allan Zarr.
Winner of the 2011 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, Anything Goes sails to The Broward Center for the Performing Arts under the direction of Sean McKnight and Jennifer Savelli. McKnight and Savelli will recreate the original direction and choreography by Kathleen Marshall, who won the 2011 Tony Award for Best Choreography. Based on Roundabout Theatre Company’s production, The New York Times calls it “a zesty new revival
with knockout numbers and white-hot dancing” while the AP exclaims that
it’s, “so delightful, so delicious, so de-lovely!”
