Step aboard the SS American with night club singer Reno Sweeney, played by Gemma Craven (West End credits include Beauty and the Beast and South Pacific) with her bevy of not so angelic angels, and her friend Billy Crocker played by Jonathon Morris (West End credits include Me And My Girl, La Cage Aux Folles, and Rocky Horror Show and on TV, 9 series of Bread as Adrian Boswell), and a host of larger than life characters, for a show described by the New York Herald Tribune as ‘Wonderful Wonderful Music! A Fun Show’

The show features such Cole Porter classics as ‘I Get A Kick Out Of You’, ‘You’re The Top’, ‘Friendship’, ‘It’s De-Lovely’, ‘Blow Gabriel Blow’, ‘All Through The Night’, and of course ‘Anything Goes’.

‘It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely, it’s ANYTHING GOES the musical, and everything does. It’s the best musical in town and will probably remain so for years to come. ANYTHING GOES is about love and honesty, the one never running smooth and the other satisfactorily rewarded….The result is a shipboard romance awash with melody and going full steam ahead with wit’. New York Post

‘Seldom do musical comedies get to be funnier’. The Theater
