ANYTHING GOES is a madcap musical comedy set on board the S. S. American, where evangelist-turned-nightclub-singer Reno Sweeney is headlining a cruise from New York to England.  Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near the girl he loves, debutante Hope Harcourt, but Hope is already engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.  

Joining this love triangle on the luxury ocean-liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his side-kick-in-crime, Erma.  Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope's affection, using some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors, and good old-fashioned blackmail.  

ANYTHING GOES is perhaps Cole Porter's most famous score including the songs "Blow Gabriel, Blow!," "You're the Top," "Friendship," and "I Get A Kick Out of You" and will surely have you humming along and tapping your toes for weeks to come.  Don't miss this gem of classic musical comedy at its finest.

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter; Original Book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse; New Book by Timothy Crouse & John Weidman; Directed by: Tommy Foster; Choreographer: Meredith Fox
