UK and IRELAND TOUR of ANYTHING GOES

Anything GoesStage Entertainment, in association with Sheffield Theatres, have announced the UK and Ireland tour of Cole Porter’s classic musical comedy, ANYTHING GOES. Following its run at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield from 28th November 2014 – 17th January 2015, the tour will open at the New Wimbledon Theatre Thursday 29th January 2015. Casting to be announced shortly.

Directed by Daniel Evans and choreographed by Alistair David, this new production of Cole Porter’s classic, multi-award-winning musical comedy, ANYTHING GOES transports you to the magical age of tap dancing and high society.

Rebecca Quigley, CEO of Stage Entertainment UK said: “I’m very excited to be working with Daniel and Alistair, whose work I have loved over the last ten years. They’re the perfect creative team to stage this hugely entertaining musical comedy.

Daniel Evans, Sheffield Theatres’ Artistic Director, added: “It’s 80 years since Cole Porter’s exhilarating score arrived on Broadway and I’m truly delighted that this collaboration between Sheffield Theatres and Stage Entertainment will see our production perform right across the UK and Ireland.”

When Billy Crocker discovers that his heart’s desire, debutante heiress Hope Harcourt is engaged to an English aristocrat, he stows away aboard the S.S. American to win her back. Aided by a string of eccentric passengers on board the luxurious transatlantic liner, can this web of love be untangled before they reach Southampton?

Featuring the rich sounds of a live orchestra and a fabulous cast of 26, Cole Porter’s joyful masterpiece of song and dance features the glorious songs I Get A Kick Out of You, You’re the Top, It’s De-Lovely and Anything Goes. Hop aboard for sassy heroines, mischievous mob bosses, comedy capers and tap dancing sailors in this hilarious tale of romance and hi-jinks on the high seas.

ANYTHING GOES has Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter. The Original Book is by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton & Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse. New Book by Timothy Crouse & John Weidman. Originally produced by Lincoln Centre Theatre, New York City.
