Anything Goes Opens
Yet another revival of Cole Porter's Anything Goes has opened on Broadway and the reviews are in. After a terrible return to Broadway in 2007 with her revival of Grease, Kathleen Marshall is back on top of her game with this stellar revival. Everything about this show was praised -- the singing, acting, and particularly the dancing, as choreographed by Ms. Marshall. But the real star seems to be Sutton Foster, who I had never been able to picture in this role but who appears to be getting some of the best reviews of her career for this dance heavy role. That Joel Grey still shines at 79, while he is also directing another show to open soon on Broadway, is another standout credit of this production. My thoughts right now? Run, don't walk, to see this show.
