The smash-hit revival of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes is sailing back to London’s Barbican Theatre next summer for an eight-week run from 15 July until 3 September 2022. Casting for the new dates is still to be announced.
The production, which smashed multiple box office records at the London theatre during its run there this last summer, will arrive at the Barbican after a UK tour to Bristol, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Canterbury theatres starting from 11 April 2022.
Producer Sir Howard Panter said:
“We are delighted to be back with the glorious Anything Goes musical at the Barbican next summer! We are equally delighted to take this majestic show on tour across the UK, so audiences around the country can enjoy the glorious set design, breathtaking choreography and stage direction, and of course the wonderful score!”
Anything Goes has music and lyrics by Cole Porter, an original book by PG Wodehouse and Guy Bolton with Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse and a new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman. This production is directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award Winner Kathleen Marshall.
When the SS American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head 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, a comical disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.
This musical romp across the Atlantic features a collection of some of theatre’s most memorable songs, including I Get A Kick Out of You, Anything Goes, You’re the Top, Blow, Gabriel, Blow, It’s De-Lovely, and Buddie Beware.
Tickets for Edinburgh will go on sale from 26 November and tickets for Canterbury from 29 November.
