Roundabout musical extends through April

The Roundabout Theater Company’s Broadway revival of “Anything Goes” has lined up another multi-month extension, with topliner Sutton Foster signed on to stick with the show for the duration.

Production, which opened in April and was initially skedded to run through July 31, will now play through April 29 at the Roundabout’s Stephen Sondheim Theater. Show had previously been extended through Jan. 8.

Foster, who scored a Tony for her perf in the revival, is the only thesp locked in through the end of April. Cast also includes Joel Grey, Colin Donnell, Adam Godley and Erin Mackey.

Anything Goes” represents an extended success for the Roundabout at the Sondheim. The venue’s programming is less rigorously scheduled than the org’s other two Main Stem theaters, in part to allow popular hits such as “Anything” to stick around longer that originally skedded.

At the Tony Awards in June, “Anything Goes” nabbed the musical revival trophy and a choreography laurel for helmer-choreographer Kathleen Marshall, along with the thesping gong for Foster.

Roundabout’s latest Broadway offering, the Frank Langella starrer “Man and Boy” at the American Airlines, is in previews ahead of an Oct. 9 opening.
