‘Anything’ goes on

Roundabout extends musical revival

Broadway revival “Anything Goes” will go on, with the initial limited engagement of the Roundabout Theater Company production extended through the rest 2011.

Well-reviewed revival of the well-known Cole Porter tuner, which opened April 7, takes advantage of the increased flexibility of the Roundabout’s Stephen Sondheim Theater, which is not locked into a set schedule of season offerings in the same way as the org’s other Broadway venues, the American Airlines Theater and Studio 54.

Kathleen Marshall-helmed musical, toplined by Sutton Foster and Joel Grey, has mostly posted weekly sales ranging between $500,000 and $600,000, relatively healthy numbers for a nonprofit production that regularly plays to a fair number of season subscribers (who pay less, per ducat, than single ticket buyers).

The strong press, coupled with familiar title and the score, seem likely to continue to spur B.O.Roundabout announced the extension via its new-media outlets on Twitter and Facebook.
