Anything Goes

Barbican Theatre, London

The toe-tapping Cole Porter hit starring Sutton Foster and Robert Lindsay

One of the all-time greatest musicals ANYTHING GOES returns to the London stage this Summer for a limited 15-week run at the Barbican Theatre.

Featuring a joyful, gold-plated score of theatre’s most memorable standards, including ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’‘You’re the Top’‘It’s De- Lovely!’ and Anything Goes, it’s everything you want a big Broadway musical to be and more!

Making her West End debut is Broadway Royalty Sutton Foster, the internationally renowned star is reprising her Tony-Award winning role as the delectable Reno Sweeney, from the 2011 Broadway production. During her dazzling stage career, Foster has won two Tony-Awards, two Drama Desk Awards and three Outer Critics Circle Awards. She will be joined by multi-award-winning star of stage and screen Robert Lindsay, as Moonface Martin, best known for starring in the hugely successful BBC sitcom My Family.

Joining them in this all-star line-up, are acting royalty and Evening Standard Theatre Award-winner Felicity Kendal (The Good Life / Much Ado About Nothing) as Evangeline Harcourt and West End Legend Gary Wilmot (Chicago / Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Elisha Whitney.

Kathleen Marshall’s previous production of Anything Goes hit the high seas on Broadway as Winner of Best Revival and Best Choreography at the Tony Awards and Drama Desk Awards, and was nominated for nine Tony Awards and ten Drama Desk Awards, including Best Actress in a Musical and Best Director of a Musical.

All aboard for this saucy and splendid major new production of Cole Porter and P. G. Wodehouse’s classic musical of pure escapism, Anything Goes. 

Anything Goes is booking until 6 November 2021 at the Barbican Theatre, London.

What’s Anything Goes About?

Its Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it’s not all smooth sailing as they head out to sea; etiquette is castoff through the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find true love.

Their journey proves that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing and dancing sailors, a comical disguise, a farcical blackmail, delightful double-entendres, and some timeless good fun!

Who’s in it? Anything Goes Cast

The cast is led by Sutton Foster (The Music Man, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Anything Goes) as Reno Sweeney, Robert Lindsey (Plebs, Bull, My Family) as Moonface Martin, Felicity Kendal (The Good Life, Much Ado About Nothing) as Evangeline Harcourt and Gary Wilmot (The Prince of Egypt) as Elisha Whitney.
