Time Out Melbourne

Opera Australia teams up with John Frost to present the 2011 Broadway revival of Cole Porter’s nautical comedy

Having teamed for Rodgers and Hammerstein's hits South Pacific and The King and I, John Frost and Opera Australia put Cole Porter's 1934 Broadway hit in their sights for 2015. Anything Goes marries hits like 'You're the Top' and 'I Get a Kick Out of You' (not to mention the title song) to a story of romantic shenanigans aboard an ocean liner travelling from New York to London. Our heroine is Reno Sweeney (played by musical theatre royalty Caroline O'Connor), a nightclub singer who is in love with stowaway stockbroker Billy Crocker (Alex Rathgeber) – who (of course!) has unrequited feelings for someone else on board. This 2011 Lincoln Centre revival features a rework of the original book (a combination of PG Wodehouse and Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse) by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman. Local Dean Bryant (Sweet Charity) directs this Australian version – with a cast including Todd McKenney, Wayne Scott Kermond and shock jock Alan Jones.

Tickets available as part of Opera Australia 2015 subscriptions from August 11.
