I grew up watching famous old musicals on TV with my grandmother like Show Boat and Singing in the Rain. With a childhood filled with tap dancing and ballads, it’s not surprising that I love classic musicals such as Anything Goes.
Cole Porter’s de-lightful and de-lovely musical comedy, Anything Goes, is playing at the Sydney Opera House until 31 October.
Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival and Choreography during its most recent Broadway revival, Anything Goes is pure fun from beginning to end. It also contains some of musical theatre’s most memorable songs including You’re The Top, I Get A Kick Out Of You, and of course the title song, Anything Goes.
In the Sydney production of Anything Goes, Australian stars Caroline O’Connor and Todd McKenney steal the show. O’Conner’s voice is magnificent, and McKenney is unrecognisable in his hilarious role.
For an evening of pure escapism and divine entertainment, I’d highly recommend seeing Anything Goes. Tickets are on sale now at the Sydney Opera House.
Thanks to Nuffnang for tickets to see the show. All opinions belong to me, thanks to my musical-loving grandmother.
