All aboard for this saucy and splendid production of Anything Goes!
Opera Australia and John Frost are proud to present Cole Porter's smash-hit musical comedy, Anything Goes.
Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival and Choreography during its most recent Broadway revival, Anything Goes is a stunning nautical favourite. Now a brand new Australian production sets sail for Melbourne.
Anything Goes has been hailed by The New York Times as "musical comedy joy", and USA Today called it "glorious and exuberant!".
For decades, Anything Goes has captivated millions with its delightful story of madcap antics aboard the S.S. American.
When the ocean liner embarks from New York to London, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love... proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.
This dazzling musical celebration, described by Ben Brantley of The New York Times has "a deluxe candy box of Cole Porter's best songs", features a hilarious tale of topsy-turvy relationships, mistaken identities and foiled plots, peppered with some of musical theatre's most memorable standards including 'You're The Top', 'I Get A Kick Out Of You', and of course the title song, 'Anything Goes'.
This is a first-class musical extravaganza, a ship-shape production that will have you 'all at sea' if you miss out on a ticket!
