Anything Goes at the Marriott Theatre
Anything Goes is non-stop laughs and madcap fun on the S.S. American with an unusual array of passengers including a gangster, a wealthy debutante, a charismatic nightclub singer and a lovesick stowaway. With spectacular dance and a boatload of Cole Porter tunes like You’re the Top, I Get a Kick Out of You and the title song, the audience will get a ‘kick’ out of Anything Goes.
