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 from 25 June 2022 until 3 September 2022 at Barbican Theatre London.
What is the story of Anything Goes?
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!
