ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid new production of Cole Porter’s musical romp across the Atlantic.  When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.

This is the fifth time Sutton Foster has appeared on a Ghostlight/Sh-K-Boom record.  Cast albums include Little Women and The Drowsy Chaperone.  Solo albums include the acclaimed CDs “Wish” and “An Evening with Sutton Foster – Live at the Café Carlyle.”
