⭐ FELICITY KENDAL & GARY WILMOT JOIN CAST OF ANYTHING GOES REVIVAL ⭐
Felicity Kendal and Gary Wilmot will be joining the cast of the highly anticipated revival of the classic Cole Porter musical Anything Goes, it has been announced.
They join the previously announced, award-winning actress, comedian and singer, Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) who will star as the delectable Reno Sweeney and Tony-Award winner Robert Lindsay (My Family), as Moonface Martin.
Kathleen Marshall’s previous production of Anything Goes hit the high seas on Broadway as Winner of Best Revival and Best Choreography at the Tony Awards and Drama Desk Awards, and was nominated for nine Tony Awards and ten Drama Desk Awards, including Best Actress in a Musical and Best Director of a Musical.
It’s Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it’s not all smooth sailing as they head out to sea; etiquette is cast off through the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find true love. Their journey proves that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing and dancing sailors, a comical disguise, a farcical blackmail, delightful double-entendres, and some timeless good fun!
Featuring a joyful, gold-plated score of theatre’s most memorable standards, including ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, ‘You’re the Top’, ‘It’s De- Lovely!’ and Anything Goes, it’s everything you want a big Broadway musical to be and more!
Anything Goes was due to open at the Barbican in May, but the opening has now been pushed back due to the ongoing uncertainty when theatres will be able to reopen. The first performance is now set for 5th June.
I can’t wait to see this show! ! !
