Anything Goes sails Into Toronto: Cole Porter's timeless musical classic begins

Princess of Wales Theatre 

$29 Rush Seats Available for All Performances

David Mirvish is proud to present the national tour of Roundabout Theatre Company’s ANYTHING GOES, the new Broadway revival of Cole Porter’s timeless classic musical theatre masterpiece. ANYTHING GOES plays a strictly limited engagement, July 17 - August 18 at the Princess of Wales Theatre

Just announced: Rush tickets at $29 will be available for all performances in-person only on a first-come basis on the day performance when the Princess of Wales Theatre  box office opens. (Check the box office hours as they vary weekly.) There is a limit of two tickets per person. 

Winner of the 2011 Tony Award® for Best Revival of a Musical, Roundabout Theatre Company’s ANYTHING GOES sails direct from Broadway under the direction of Kathleen Marshall, who won the 2011 Tony Award® for Best Choreography.  The New York Times calls it “a zesty new revival with knockout numbers and white-hot dancing” while the AP exclaims that it’s, “so delightful, so delicious, so de-lovely!”

ANYTHING GOES, the 1934 musical comedy about the lovers, liars and clowns on a transatlantic cruise is “a daffy, shipshape romp!” - Variety. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.

Rachel York stars as Reno Sweeney and Fred Applegate stars as Moonface Martin. The principal cast includes Josh Franklin as Billy Crocker, Jeff Brooks as Purser, Joyce Chittick as Erma, Alex Finke as Hope Harcourt, Dennis Kelly as Elisha Whitney, Vincent Rodriguez III as Luke, Marcus Shane as John, Sandra Shipley as Mrs. Evangeline Harcourt, Edward Staudenmayer as Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, and Chuck Wagner as Captain.
