Packed with memorable tunes, Cole Porter’s Anything Goes has embarked on its U.S. national tour after its Tony-winning Broadway revival in 2011. The musical showcases Porter’s signature wit and masterful composition in beloved songs such as “I Get a Kick Out of You” and “You’re the Top.” This timeless tale of boy-meets-girl and the resulting roller coaster ride centers on Billy Crocker (Erich Bergen), who’s hopelessly in love with a wealthy heiress. When he sees her boarding a boat to London, he throws caution to the wind and becomes a stowaway. Madcap hijinks ensue when his fellow passengers, including the evangelist-turned-nightclub singer Reno Sweeney (played by Broadway vet Rachel York) and second-rate gangster Moonface Martin (Fred Applegate of Sister Act and Young Frankenstein), decide to help Billy win his true love.
