News   PHOTO CALL: Joel Grey, Sutton Foster and Kathleen Marshall Discuss Anything Goes at TimesTalks
 
Tony Award winners Joel Grey, Sutton Foster and Kathleen Marshall took part in the New York Times' March 21 TimesTalks event. Director-choreographer Marshall discussed the current Roundabout revival of Anything Goes with show stars Foster and Grey.

Tony Award winner Sutton Foster plays the nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney, who gets the lion's share of hit songs by composer-lyricist Porter: "You're the Top," "Friendship," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Blow, Gabriel, Blow" and "Anything Goes."

Grey (Cabaret, The Grand Tour, Chicago) plays a low-grade, charming public enemy named Moonface Martin.

Here is a look at the trio:


 

Tony winner Kathleen Marshall (The Pajama Game, Wonderful Town) directs and choreographs the 1934 confection, which has songs by Porter and a libretto by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman, who drew on the original Depression-era script (by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse) for this 1987 version of the show (it was named Best Revival at the Tony Awards that season). Crouse and Weidman have tweaked the script, slightly, for this staging, Marshall told Playbill.com.
