Anything Goes Will Tap Its Way to Toronto, Replacing Honeymoon in Vegas
02 Aug 2012
A visit by the national tour of the Tony Award-winning Anything Goes will be part of the Mirvish subscription season in Toronto in 2012-13, replacing the canceled booking of the pre-Broadway musical Honeymoon in Vegas.
The fizzy Cole Porter musical, directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall and starring Rachel York as Reno Sweeney, will run July 16-Aug. 18.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
