Broadway’s ready for ‘Anything’

Marshall to helm Roundabout revival

Roundabout Theater Company has confirmed a Broadway revival of “Anything Goes” for the coming season, in a Sutton Foster-toplined production aiming to start previews in February.

Directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall, helmer of Roundabout’s successful 2006 staging of “The Pajama Game,” the new incarnation of 1934 musical “Anything Goes” will use the Timothy Crouse-John Weidman book — first seen in the tuner’s 1987 Main Stem revival — to go along with the Cole Porter tunes.

Foster, last seen on the Main Stem in “Shrek the Musical,” is cast as nightclub singer Reno Sweeney, one of a number of passengers whose comic antics make up the plot of “Anything Goes.” Original book is by P.G. Wodehouse, Guy Bolton, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse.

Design team for the Roundabout staging includes Derek McLane (sets), Martin Pakledinaz (costumes) and Peter Kaczorowski (lights).

An exact opening date is yet to be determined, as is which of the Roundabout’s three Broadway houses the show will play — Studio 54, Henry Miller’s or the American Airlines.
