ANYTHING GOES MUSICAL IS CHARMING - ENJOYABLE


THE CAST. PHOTO JOAN MARCUS







ANYTHING GOES – AMAZING CAST AT
GOLDEN GATE THEATRE

Hey, take it from me. This is the ultimate musical. The score is mesmerizing, and the entire cast is outstanding. They belt out the famous songs in a way like never before! The arrangements will not only dazzle you – the music will keep your toes tapping.

Rachel is ideally cast as a singing chanteuse-turned evangelist. I’ve sometimes been skeptical about revivals, but this time on the Golden Gate Theatre stage, everyone and everything about the show sparkles with pizazz and panache. You’ll see – it’s not the least disappointing – just follow Reno’s timeless advice: “Stand up on your lazy feet and sing!” Yep – this show has plenty of Style, Class and Sex appeal.

Love this line: “Please don’t unwrap your Life Savers. We have enough ‘Life Savers’ on Board!”

This production of the show is definitely a hands-down winner. There is nothing disappointing about this revival.

Yeh- I’m still humming “You’re the Top”. It’s such a fun show. And when the singers are on the deck singing ‘It’s De-Lovely’ the moonlight speaks to love and romance. The moon has a lot to do with the atmosphere. And what is even more seductive is the full Overture. Even the music Conductor sings (quietly mouthing) along with the songs.

Alex Finkle sings (Hope Harcourt) “Goodbye, Little Dream, Goodbye” with a silvery singing voice. I just love the Cole Porter music. There are so many fun moments in the show – and, Laughter is all around the audience. This is one of the best musicals I’ve seen this year. It’s all together Amazing musical.

NOW PLAY AT THE GOLDEN GATE THEATRE
