I was thrilled to be invited by Nuffnang to attend a performance of Anything Goes at the Sydney Opera House.
Anything Goes | they say
All aboard for this saucy and splendid production of Anything Goes!
Opera Australia and John Frost are proud to present Cole Porter’s smash-hit musical comedy, Anything Goes.
The elegant and “riotously entertaining” Anything Goes has earned rave reviews and standing ovations at every performance! Starring the show-stopping Caroline O’Connor and the sensational Todd McKenney, the high-energy musical is Sydney’s hottest new hit of the season.
For decades Anything Goes has entranced theatre-goers the world over with its show-stopping tap routines, thrilling melodies and comic verve. The musical comedy charts the high seas of topsy-turvy relationships, mistaken identities and foiled schemes. Cole Porter’s sparkling score features some of the theatre’s most memorable standards, including ‘You’re The Top’, ‘I get A Kick Out of You’ and, of course, the toe-tapping title song, ‘Anything Goes’.
Australia’s dynamic creative team, Helpmann Award-winning Dean Bryant and Andrew Hallsworth, are at the helm of the triumphant new production of Cole Porter’s classic musical comedy Anything Goes. Critics and audiences are unanimous in their praise about the wondrous show and its brilliant cast.
Don’t miss the hottest show in town — the must-see musical comedy for all the family, with one of the greatest tap routines on the Australian stage.
Anything Goes | Kimba says
I’m rather a fan of vintage glam, retrocute, tap dancing, Cole Porter and musical comedy. Plus who doesn’t love the Sydney Opera House? I was understandably delighted to attend the performance of Anything Goes. First staged in 1934, and set in the same time period.
The production of Anything Goes is beautifully staged, and was rollicking good fun. It’s funny, charming and glamorous.
There is a tap dancing performance that just took my breath away, songs that made me want to sing along, and costumes To Die For.
Caroline O’Connor is one of Australia’s theatre legends for a very good reason, and I’m pretty sure it is illegal to stage a production in Australia without Todd McKenney. He was equally fabulous.
It was a fabulous night out, and I highly recommend getting yourself along to see it before it closes on October 31 2015.
