A sea-faring, romantic comedy musicalClimb aboard for tap-dancing sailors and high-seas antics when classic musical Anything Goes returns to London in 2021. Starring Robert Lindsay and Sutton Foster, Cole Porter’s much-loved comedy opens at the Barbican Theatre this summer.
When the S.S. America embarks for England, it’s not all smooth sailing for two sets of infatuated passengers. From stowaway Billy Crocker to singer Reno Sweeney, the ships’ eccentric inhabitants quickly discover that the journey towards true love might just lead them into choppy waters.
Featuring a cabin-full of bombastic songs including “You’re the Top” and “It’s De-Lovely!”, Anything Goes tickets will take you on a hilarious journey of disguises, blackmail and farce.
Musical star Sutton Foster, who won a Tony Award for Anything Goes on Broadway, and Olivier Award winner Robert Lindsay (My Family) co-star as two of the S.S. America’s most beloved passengers, Reno Sweeney and Moonface Martin.
Set sail for an evening of pure escapist entertainment accompanied by musical theatre’s most recognisable songs. Anything Goes at the Barbican Theatre opens for a limited season in Summer 2021.
