Earlier today I posted a blog about the upcoming production of Sister Act The Musical where I mentioned Tony winner Sutton Foster and her rise to stardom since winning the Tony Award in 2002 for her breakthrough performance in Thoroughly Modern Millie. Well now it's time to talk about her latest production. That's right theatre fans. Broadway's favorite leading lady is set to return to the stage this Spring in the new Broadway revival of Anything Goes.
Joining her in this beloved Cole Porter classic is fellow Tony winner Joel Grey. The show which is being staged by two-time Tony winner Kathleen Marshall is set to begin previews at the Stephen Sondheim on March 10 with opening night scheduled for April 7. Now while I personally am not familiar with the show it does feature some of Broadway's most popular songs like " I Get a Kick Out of You",You're the Top", It's De-lovely"and of course the title song "Anything Goes."
As of now the show is scheduled to run thru July 31 but if reviews are good and I expect they will be Anything Goes will be here for a long time. In fact besides the upcoming production of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying it is the only other revival opening this season. Weird right? Just last year alone there were six musicals vying for the Tony Award for Best Revival. This year it's a two-horse race. Guess we'll have to wait and see who gets the better reviews. Let the games begin.
