One of the all-time greatest musicals ANYTHING GOES, is playing at London’s Barbican Theatre until 6 November 2021.
Due to phenomenal public demand for tickets, two extra matinee performances have been added on Wednesday 27 October and Wednesday 3 November.
Broadway star Rachel York will replace Sutton Foster on 12 October and will complete the show’s extended run as Reno Sweeney. Haydn Gwynne will also replace Felicity Kendal as Evangeline Harcourt.
They join Robert Lindsay (Me & My Girl, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Moonface Martin and Gary Wilmot (Chicago, London Palladium Pantomimes) as Elisha Whitney.
The musical also stars Samuel Edwards (Les Misérables / Wicked) as Billy Crocker, Nicole-Lily Baisden (The Book of Mormon / Let’s Face The Music) as Hope Harcourt, Haydn Oakley (A Christmas Carol / An American in Paris) as Lord Evelyn Oakleigh and Carly Mercedes Dyer (West Side Story/Chicago) as Erma.
With music and lyrics by Cole Porter and the original book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse, ANYTHING GOES will premiere at the Barbican Theatre from July to October and then embark on a UK tour.
When the S.S. 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 hilarious musical romp across the Atlantic featuring 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’, ‘Friendship’ and ‘Buddie Beware’ – will take you back to the Golden Age of high society on the seas. ANYTHING GOES is set to sail away with audiences all over again.
