New York City
Shipboard romance, comedy, mischief and mistaken identity are intertwined in Cole Porter’s Anything Goes. Guest director Bill Fennelly, called “one of America’s hottest young directors” (Etcetera Magazine), turns this light ’30s fare with its trans-Atlantic journey into a metaphor for joyous human transformation. Opening in the grips of the Depression in New York City, this uniquely staged production unfolds on a ship where, literally, anything goes and anything can happen. It tells the “uproariously scrambled” (New York Post) stories of a Wall Street assistant, his boss, the girl he loves, the man she’s engaged to, her widowed mother-and a colorful crew of characters of every stripe. Through exhilarating dance numbers and such blissful classic hits as “I Get a Kick out of You,” “You’re the Top” and “It’s De-Lovely,” people cast off their disguises and depression to find their true identities-and true love.
