The Musicals Tonight! series in New York has announced that a revival of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes has joined its spring lineup, set to feature three musicals. The show, which will run March 14–March 26, will be directed and choreographed by Casey Colgan, with music direction and vocal arrangements by Christopher Stephens.

Anything Goes was last seen on Broadway in 2011 in a revival from Roundabout Theatre Company. The production starred Sutton Foster, who was awarded a Tony Award for her performance as Reno Sweeney.

Set on a luxury cruise liner, the story follows the adventures of an Evangelist-turned-nightclub singer, a lovelorn stockbroker wooing a lovely debutante, her British lord fiancé, and a gangster disguised as a minister. Songs from the hit musical include: “I Get a Kick Out of You.” “You'd Be So Easy to Love,” “You're the Top,” “It's De-Lovely,” and “Let’s Misbehave.”

Musicals Tonight!’s complete line up is made up of Louisiana Purchase by Irving Berlin (February 28–March 12); and Porter’s Du Barry was a Lady (March 28–April 9).

Performances will be at The Lion Theatre at Theatre Row, located at 410 West 42nd Street, New York. Single tickets are $32.25 and can be purchased from the box office or by calling Telecharge (212) 239-6200.
