Anything Goes at Drury Lane extends to 28 Aug 2004
The musical Anything Goes, has been extended by another 3 months to 28 Aug 2004 at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which will probably be the last extension as The Producers will be going into the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in Oct 2004.
The show, which won the 2003 Laurence Olivier Award for 'Outstanding Musical Production', had a sell-out season at the National from December 2002 to March 2003 and received superb notices from the popular press. It transferred to the Drury Lane theatre in September 2003.
It is directed by Trevor Nunn, designed by John Gunter, costumes by Anthony Powell, lighting by David Hersey and choreography by Stephen Mear.
The 45-strong company is headed by Sally Ann Triplett (Reno Sweeney) and John Barrowman (Billy Crocker).
Among the passengers heading for England on the luxury liner S.S. American are Reno Sweeney, a sometime celebrity evangelist turned nightclub entertainer and Lord Oakleigh, a wealthy English aristocrat, accompanied by his debutante fianc‚e, Hope Harcourt, her protective mother and Wall Street millionaire, Eli Whitney. Less legally on board are the stowaway Billy Crocker, desperately pursuing Hope, and Moonface Martin, Public Enemy Number Thirteen, desperately seeking the kind of notoriety enjoyed by Snake Eyes Johnson, who the F.B.I. believe to be making the trip in disguise.
Songs includes I' Get A Kick Out of You', 'You're the Top', 'It's De-Lovely', 'Blow Gabriel Blow', 'You'd Be So Easy to Love', 'All Through the Night' and 'Anything Goes'.
