ANYTHING GOES, the 1934 musical comedy about the lovers, liars and clowns on a transatlantic cruise is “a daffy, shipshape romp!” – Variety. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.

    I would be thrilled to win the tickets to see Anything Goes. I love love love the music from Anything Goes. I am also a big fan of any show that has tap dancing, and boy o boy does this show have some great hoofers in it. I would also bring my daughter, a long time tap dancer.

    Anything Goes is my favorite musical. It was the first musical I was ever in; I was 14. It opened my eyes to an entirely new and amazing world of musical theater. A world where live music and dancing and humor and drama come together. My eyes haven’t been able to shut since.
