The final eight weeks of performances begin today for Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) Tony Award winning production of Anything Goes. The original limited engagement subscription run opened on April 7, 2011 and was scheduled to run for 19 weeks. It went on to be extended three times through August 5, 2012 and this week, Anything Goes will celebrate its 500th performance on Broadway. This acclaimed production marks the second longest Broadway run in Roundabout’s history, following its beloved revival of Cabaret.

Roundabout Theatre Company’s national tour of Anything Goes, starring Rachel York, begins in October 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio and will continue on to over 20 additional cities in 2012-2013.

Directed & choreographed by 2011 Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall, Anything Goes is playing on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 West 43rd Street) through August 5, 2012.

Critics have called Anything Goes “a zesty new revival with knockout numbers & white-hot dancing” (New York Times); “musical-comedy bliss!” (Daily News) and “For any lover of live musical theater, Anything Goes sends meteoric thrills streaking across our field of vision for days to come” (New York Magazine). Vogue has said “Roundabout Theater Company’s buoyant production of Anything Goes has a lot going for it: indelible Cole Porter standards, whose gleaming melodies and perfectly wrought, effortlessly urbane lyrics are still the top and Kathleen Marshall’s Busby Berkeley /Fred and Ginger–era dance numbers” and Vanity Fair has said “I can’t imagine there’s a better show in New York right now than the revival of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes.”

Anything Goes features music & lyrics by Cole Porter, an original book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse and a new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman.

The creative team includes Bill Elliott (Additional Orchestrations), Rob Fisher (Musical Director) and David Chase (Dance Arranger). The design team includes Derek McLane (Sets), Martin Pakledinaz (Costumes), Peter Kaczorowski (Lights) and Brian Ronan (Sound).

Roundabout thanks Bank of America, the sponsor of the entire run, and the members of the Musical Theatre Production Fun whose lead gifts helped make this production possible.

ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid new production of Cole Porter’s musical romp across the Atlantic. 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. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theater’s most memorable standards, including “You're the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get A Kick Out of You,” and “Anything Goes.”
