Cole Porter's Anything Goes
Music, dance, laughs, and the age-old tale of Boy Meets Girl– no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES! A hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores, ANYTHING GOES is Delightful, Delicious, and De-Lovely.
Two versions of ANYTHING GOES are available for presentation: the 1962 version and this 1987 Beaumont version, each based on the same story. Both may be accompanied by a piano, a small instrumental combo or a full orchestra. This 1987 Beaumont version has twice as much dance music as the 1962 version, and the orchestration features a shipboard sound derived from the utility band and less-than-ideal acoustics on board. Both versions include “It’s De-Lovely,” “Friendship,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “All Through The Night,” “Anything Goes,” “You’re The Top” and “Blow, Gabriel, Blow.” This 1987 Beaumont version also includes “Buddie Beware” and “Easy To Love.” (The 1962 version also includes “Take Me Back To Manhattan” and “Let’s Misbehave.”)
