Cole Porter classic Anything Goes returns to Sydney
The Tony award-winning musical Anything Goes will make a return to Sydney next year when Aussie theatre producer John Frost and Opera Australia Artistic Director Lyndon Terracini join forces for a new national production.
Directed by Dean Bryant and choreographed by Andrew Hallsworth, Anything Goes will play in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney in 2015.
Hailed by The New York Times as “musical-comedy joy” this revival production of Cole Porters's classic dishes up sassy tap numbers, corny jokes, and of course wonderful songs.
“After the overwhelming success of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific and The King and I, a revival of Anything Goes featuring the dazzling music of Cole Porter seemed the obvious choice," said Lyndon Terracini.
“Since its Broadway premiere, it has become one of the best loved and most revived musicals of all time.”
Anything Goes has captivated millions of audience members around the globe with its delightful story of madcap antics aboard the SS American.
When the ocean liner embarks from New York to London, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find 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.
