There’s gangsters, stock brokers, a debutante and her high society fiance, a missionary, a night club evangelist and her tap dancing angels on board the SS American ship across the trans-Atlantic in ‘Anything Goes’. CTC’s George Quick directs this production of the Cole Porter musical from the 1930’s. The show opens Friday night, July 13th on the Main Stage in Chattanooga’s theatre by the river. Here’s more from the press release:
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. Anything Goes is a shining example of classic musical theater, complete with amazing tap numbers, campy jokes, unlikely happy endings and eminently hummable songs like “De-Lovely,” “I Get a Kick Out Of You” and “Anything Goes,” courtesy of the unforgettable score by Cole Porter.
