Broadway star Sutton Foster will replace Megan Mullay in the London revival of Anything Goes at the Barbican Theatre.
Often referred to as Broadway royalty, Sutton will make her West End debut reprising her Tony Award winning role as Reno Sweeney, from the 2011 production. During her dazzling stage career, Foster has won two Tony Awards, two Drama Desk Awards and three Outer Critics Circle Awards. For the last several years she has starred in tv series Younger and later this year will appear alongside Hugh Jackman in the Broadway production The Music Man.
Tony, Olivier and BAFTA winner Robert Lindsay will play Moonface Martin. Well known for tv series My Family, Lindsay’s many stage credits include fun musical comedies such as Dirty Scoundrels and Me And My Girl to dramatic performances in Shakespeare’s Richard III, Joe Orten’s The Entertainer, The Lion in Winter, Moliere’s Cyrano De Bergerac and more recently Prism.
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.
Cole Porter and PG Wodehouse’s hit musical comedy is set on the SS Americana and follows two pairings that try to find love on the high seas. It features classic numbers such as “I Get A Kick Out of You”, “You’re the Top”, “It’s De- Lovely!” and “Anything Goes”.
The production will be directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall whose 2011 Broadway revival was nominated for 9 Tony Awards winning for Best Revival and Best Choreograpy.
Mullally was forced to withdraw from the show due to an injury sustained whilst in rehearsal.
Anything Goes will run from 23 July 2021 until 18 October 2021 at the Barbican Theatre, London.
