The age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES. This show is an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s magical scores. Two versions of it are available for presentation. The 1962 and the 1987 Beaumont versions are based on the same story. Both may be accompanied by a piano, a small instrumental combo or a full orchestra. The 1987 Beaumont version has twice as much dance music as the 1962 version, and the orchestration features a shipboard sound derived from the utility band and less-than-ideal acoustics on board. Terrific Cole Porter songs in both versions include It’s De-Lovely, Friendship, I Get A Kick Out Of You, All Through The Night, Anything Goes, You’re The Top and Blow, Gabriel, Blow. In addition the 1962 version includes Take Me Back To Manhattan and Let’s Misbehave. Buddie Beware and Easy To Love are added to the 1987 Beaumont version. It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where ANYTHING GOES!
