Anything Goes is the Tony Award winning Broadway Musical featuring music and lyrics by Cole Porter, original book by P. G. Wodehouse, Guy Bolton, Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse, new book by Timothy Crouse and John
Weidman.

Anything Goes first opened on Broadway in 1934 and has enjoyed several revivals in the US and Britain, Tony nominations, Tony awards, record-breaking runs, 2 films and of course, famous leading actors Patti Lupone, Sutton Foster and Joel Grey. Cole Porter’s music is timeless with songs (including “Blow Gabriel Blow” “I get a Kick Out of You”, “You’re the Top” and of course, the title tune, “Anything Goes.”) while the show has kept audiences entertained for decades. The story concerns Reno Sweeney, a nightclub singer, who falls in love with Billy Crocker who loves another — Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to marry Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, the merger will save her family business. Billy’s boss, Hope’s mother and Public enemy#13, Moonface Martin, add more mayhem and hilarious comedic moments. All are aboard an action-filled voyage on an ocean liner bound from New York to London.

Anything Goes is filled with classic Cole Porter songs, exciting tap numbers and huge vocals from our cast of actors, singers and dancers from around the metroplex.

RSM’s production of Anything Goes is directed and choreographed by Dallas guest Director Linda Leonard and Music Director, Mary Medrick . Anything Goes, RSM’s second show of the 2014 Season, will certainly provide the professional entertainment audiences now expect from RSM.
