Speaking on The One Show, Kendal said of the revival: “It’s a classic, it’s a joyous production and it’s amazing, the show is phenomenal, just get a ticket!”
Added Lindsay: “Sutton Foster is just phenomenal, and every single one of our cast of which there are 28 members can sing, dance, act and be funny which is what’s required for this show and it’s great to be in it.”
The show, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter is scheduled to play a limited season through to 17 October 2021.
Kathleen Marshall will direct, reimagining her 2011 Broadway revival of the show which won the Tony Awards for Best Musical Revival and Best Choreography for Marshall.
A teaser for the production reads:
All aboard for this saucy and splendid major new production of Cole Porter and P. G. Wodehouse’s classic musical of pure escapism, Anything Goes. Featuring a joyful, gold-plated score of theatre’s most memorable standards, including ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, ‘You’re the Top’, ‘It’s De- Lovely!’ and Anything Goes, it’s everything you want a big Broadway musical to be and more!
It’s Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it’s not all smooth sailing as they head out to sea; etiquette is cast off through the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find true love. Their journey proves that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing and dancing sailors, a comical disguise, a farcical blackmail, delightful double-entendres, and some timeless good fun!
