National Theatre - Olivier Theatre
Directed by Trevor Nunn
Anything Goes is a musical with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The story concerns madcap antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London. Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope. The musical introduced such songs as "Anything Goes", "You're the Top", "Blow, Gabriel, Blow" and "I Get a Kick Out of You."
“Trevor Nunn('s)... revival of Cole Porter's 1934 musical Anything Goes is terrific fun. In the words of a Porter song borrowed from elsewhere, it's delightful, delicious, delovely”
- The Times, Benedict Nightingale.
ANYTHING GOES won the Critics' Circle Award: Best Musical and the Laurence Olivier Award: Outstanding Musical Production.
