Anything Goes

  • The Playhouse Theatre 106 Bathurst St Hobart, TAS, 7000 Australia (map)

Winner of six Tony Awards, this hilarious show is set in the 1930’s aboard the luxury ocean liner SS American en route from New York to England. Onboard is evangelist-turned-nightclub-singer Reno Sweeney who discovers the man she adores, Billy Crocker, has stowed away to pursue another girl. But it’s far from smooth sailing for Billy, as debutante Hope announces her engagement to wealthy Englishman, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this unlikely love quadrangle is an unusual collection of passengers with elaborate disguises, mistaken identities and foiled plots – it’s non-stop hijinks on the high seas!

Performed by the Crew’s senior ensemble with special guest artist John X as multi-millionaire Whitney, Anything Goes features a sensational eight piece band, spectacular tap and dance routines and eminently hummable songs including, ‘I Get a Kick Out Of You’, ‘De-Lovely’, ‘You’re the top’ and ‘Anything Goes’.
