What is Anything Goes about?

It’s not all smooth sailing on the SS American cruise ship as it heads out to sea! The ship isn’t the only thing to cast off in this musical as etiquette jumps ship through the portholes. Two unlikely pairs set out to find true love and destiny gets a helping hand from the crew of singing/dancing sailors. Anything Goes is complete with: a comical disguise, ludicrous blackmail, delightful double-entendres, and, of course, a dash of timeless good fun!
