The show has been filmed on stage and will be presented in cinemas across the country in over 450 cinema screens nationwide for two nights only on Sunday 28 November and Wednesday 1 December.

Tickets will go on-sale from Friday 15 October at anythinggoesmusicalcinema.com.

Reprising her Tony-award winning role from the 2011 Broadway production, Sutton Foster plays Reno Sweeney with Olivier Award and Tony-Award winner Robert Lindsay as Moonface Martin.

Alongside Foster and Lindsay, the cast in the filmed production features Felicity Kendal as Evangeline Harcourt and Gary Wilmot as Elisha Whitney.

They’re joined by Samuel Edwards as Billy Crocker, Nicole-Lily Baisden as Hope Harcourt, Carly Mercedes Dyer as Erma and Haydn Oakley as Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.

Kathleen Marshall directs the show, which has music and lyrics by Cole Porter, joined on the creative team by set designer Derek McLane, lighting designer Neil Austin, sound designer Simon Baker and music supervisor Stephen Ridley.

Producer Howard Panter said: “The multi-Tony Award winning glorious production of Anything Goes, directed by Kathleen Marshall, is not to be missed. London audiences already cannot get enough of this energetic and uplifting classic musical which has been sold out night after night.

“From four outstanding leading actors – Sutton, Robert, Felicity, Gary – to the spectacular supporting company, the glorious set design, the breathtaking choreography and of course the wonderful score. It really is ‘the show of the year’ that everyone should experience and I am delighted that via this two day cinema release the show will get an even wider audience across the UK.”

Trafalgar Releasing’s CEO Marc Allenby added: “We’re delighted to be working with our partners within the Trafalgar Entertainment Group to bring this entertaining and uplifting five star musical to cinemas across the UK.

“Musical theatre has a proven track record of box office success on the big screen, and with its all-star cast, spectacular dance routines and instantly recognizable songs, Anything Goes is the perfect production to bring laughter and joy to cinema audiences.”

The West End production is currently due to play through to 6 November with tickets on sale now here.
