The Kathleen Marshall-helmed revival of Anything Goes opened on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre April 7, 2011. The production played 32 preview and 521 performances before closing July 8, 2012. The musical earned nine Tony Award nomination, winning three, including Best Revival of a Musical.
With music and lyrics by Cole Porter and book by Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse, Anything Goes tells the story of an evangelist-turned-nightclub singer, a lovelorn stockbroker wooing a lovely debutante, the debutante's British lord fiancé, and a gangster disguised as a minister who all turn up on a luxury cruise liner to sing, dance and romance.
