'Anything Goes' revival coming to L.A. in late 2012
The Tony-winning Broadway revival of "Anything Goes" will make its way to L.A. in late 2012 as part of a national tour, organizers have announced. The Cole Porter musical is scheduled to run at the Ahmanson Theatre in November and December 2012, although exact dates haven't been announced.
"Anything Goes" opened in April at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York with a cast including Sutton Foster and Joel Grey. The revival is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall. No casting has been announced for the tour.
The production, by the Roundabout Theatre Company, won Tony Awards for best revival, actress (Foster) and choreography. The Broadway cast album was recently nominated for a Grammy Award.
Organizers said that the national tour will begin in October in Cleveland.
"Anything Goes" will be part of the Ahmanson's 2012-13 season.
