A major new production of Cole Porter’s classic comedy musical Anything Goes has been announced, starring Megan Mullally as the delectable Reno Sweeney, opposite Tony and Olivier Award-winner Robert Lindsay as Moonface Martin. The production will open at the Barbican on 8 May 2021, continuing a strictly limited run until August 2021.
Mullally makes her West End debut in the role and is best known for her iconic role as Karen Walker in hit TV sitcom Will & Grace. Winner of three SAG Awards, two Emmy Awards and four Golden Globe nominations, she joins multi-award winning actor Lindsay, who became a household name after starring in BBC’s My Family.
Anything Goes is Porter and P.G. Wodehouse’s classic, featuring memorable musical tunes such as “I Get a Kick Out of You”, “You’re the Top”, “It’s De-Lovely!” and, of course, the showstopping “Anything Goes”.
It’s Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it’s not all smooth sailing as they head out to sea. Prepare for comical disguise, farcical blackmail, delightful double-entendres and more as etiquette is cast away and two unlikely pairs chart their course to find true love.
Anything Goes is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall, whose previous production of the musical won Best Revival and Best Choreography at the Tony Awards and Drama Desk Awards, and was nominated for nine Tony Awards and ten Drama Desk Awards, including Best Actress in a Musical and Best Director of a Musical. Now, this stunning new production taps its way across the Atlantic and is set to be a complete summer smash-hit.
