“ANYTHING GOES is one of the best romantic farce musicals, with star-crossed lovers, mistaken identities, lots of tap dancing and one of the best collections of Cole Porter songs to be found in any show,” said Executive Artistic Director Daniel Thomas. . “We are fortunate to have a group of performers who can tell this story with today’s sensibility while maintaining the fast-paced comedy style of the 1930s. ALL MIGHT is lightness, laughter and love, and a fantastic way to start the 2023”.
