An American Classic
May 22 – June 28, 2020
Directed by Justin Allen Slagle
In New York City in the early 1930s, successful Wall Street banker Elisha Whitney waits impatiently for his assistant Billy Crocker to drop off some items for Whitney’s upcoming vacation. But Billy forgets Whitney’s passport and agrees to deliver it on the cruise ship the following morning. Billy then meets and falls in love with a beautiful girl who is boarding the SS American, the same London-bound ship his boss is boarding. He sneaks aboard himself. The beautiful girl, Hope, is engaged to a stuffy British aristocrat, Lord Evelyn, but that doesn’t stop the love-struck Billy.
Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.
After more disguises, ploys, confessions, mistaken identities, and marriage proposals, all done to the fantastic music of Cole Porter, how will everything work out? Who knows? Anything goes!
Anything Goes features the classic American classics “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “You’re The Top,” “Bon Voyage,” “Friendship,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “Anything Goes,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “Be Like The Bluebird” and “All Through The Night.”
