Anything Goes set to make landfall at the Barbican in early May 2021!

Hop on board this major new production of Cole Porter and P. G. Wodehouse’s splendid, saucy musical Anything Goes! Offering a jolly, gold-plated musical score with such toe-tapping numbers as 'It's De-Lovely', 'You're the Top', and 'I Get A Kick Out of You', the nearly 100-year-old hit production opens for previews on 8 May 2021 at the Barbican Centre in London, where it will run until 22 August 2021. Official opening night (press night) is scheduled to take place on 20 May at 7pm.

Casting announced for Anything Goes 2021 London revival production

The upcoming Anything Goes revival is set to star internationally renowned American actress, singer, and comedian Megan Mullally in the iconic role of Reno Sweeney. The two-time Emmy Award winner will be joined on stage by three-time Olivier and Tony Award winner Robert Lindsay, who will take on the role of Moonface Martin. Further casting will be announced in due course.

Nominated for four Golden Globes and having won three SAG Awards, Mullally is perhaps best known for her role on the smash-hit TV sitcom Will & Grace, in which she played Karen Walker. Her Anything Goes co-star Robert Lindsay is also a household name in the UK, best known for starring on BBC's My Family.

Anything Goes musical plot

A cruise on the S. S. American is no Bon Voyage as the passengers and crew are in for some rough seas. Manners and etiquette are cast away through the portholes as two unlikely couples set off on a journey to find true romance... with a little help from a group of singing, dancing sailors, of course! Brace yourselves and hang on to the bulkheads for a wild ride of funny disguises, farcical blackmail, timeless old fun, and some clever double-entendres that will keep you entertained from start to finish.
