Premiered in 1934, Anything Goes charts the madcap antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London.

Celebrities, gangsters and stowaways clash in this lively, funny musical, which is packed full of Cole Porter classics such as It’s Delovely, I Get A Kick Out of You, Let’s Misbehave, Blow, Gabriel, Blow and, of course, the title song, Anything Goes.

The story, for those unfamiliar with the piece is simple... Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.
