Anything Goes

ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid production of Roundabout Theatre Company’s ANYTHING GOES, winner of three 2011 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival and Choreography! One of the greatest musicals in theatre history, Cole Porter’s first-class musical comedy is sailing to Toronto, starring critically-acclaimed actress Rachel York as Reno Sweeney and directed and choreographed by Tony Award® winner Kathleen Marshall. The New York Times calls it “MUSICAL-COMEDY JOY” and USA TODAY hails it as “GLORIOUS and EXHUBERANT!”

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love…proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “You’re the Top,” and of course, “Anything Goes.” Don’t miss what the AP exclaims as, “So DELIGHTFUL, So DELICIOUS, So DE-LOVELY!”

The Rascals: Once Upon A Dream

Produced and directed by rock legend Steven Van Zandt and lighting/projection wizard Marc Brickman, The Rascals: Once Upon A Dream is a hybrid of a Rock concert and a Broadway show, Rock N’ Soul dance party meets the Jersey Boys. A bioconcert that is completely original in its concept, Once Upon A Dream was a sold-out hit on Broadway, thrilling audiences and critics alike. More than just a concert experience, the audience is taken through the history of The Rascals, and the history of the 1960s through their music, which includes such smash hits as “Good Lovin’”,”Lonely Too Long”, “It’s a Beautiful Morning”, “How Can I Be Sure” and “Groovin’.” Their story is told through a combination of live narrative and performance, film reenactments of pivotal moments in history for the band, and archival performance and news footage.

The Rascals: Once Upon A Dream has audiences dancing in the aisles every night. A feel-good experience for everyone who loves music, and a wildly entertaining story of one of America’s most influential rock bands. Don’t miss it!
