Anything Goes


The sold-out five-star musical sensation, ANYTHING GOES returns to the Barbican by popular demand from July 2022 for a strictly limited season. The ‘musical equivalent of sipping one glass of champagne after another’ (The Times) and as ‘delightful, delicious, and buoyant as helium’ (Evening Standard).

Featuring a 50 strong cast and ensemble of the finest we have to offer on the London stage (including tap dancing sailors!) and a full-sized live orchestra, this uplifting production of ANYTHING GOES features heart-warming romance, farcical fun and spectacular show stopping dance routines.

Directed by the multi-award-winning Broadway director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall, this production for London features Cole Porter’s joyful score, including ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, ‘You’re the Top’ and the show stopping ‘Anything Goes’.

What is Anything Goes about?

It’s Bon Voyage on the SS American 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!
