JULIE HALSTON (Evangeline Harcourt).  Julie Halston is one of New York’s busiest actresses. Well-known to theatre audiences, she  received a Drama Desk Nomination this year for her performance in Charles Busch’s comedy The Divine Sister. She has appeared in  many Broadway and Off-Broadway including Hairspray, Gypsy, The Twentieth Century (Outer Critics Circle Nomination), Love Loss and What I Wore, The Vagina Monologues and numerous others. Miss Halston was a founding member of Mr. Busch’s now legendary theatre company, Theatre- in-Limbo and has co-starred with him in over ten productions including Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, The Lady in Question, Red Scare on Sunset (Drama Desk Nom) and Shanghai Moon. She recently was seen in his most recent Off-Bwy play Olive and the Bitter Herbs. In addition to theatre ,Miss Halston is known to television audiences as Bitsy Von Muffling from the smash hit “Sex and The City “, Tina Carmello from “The Class” and to younger audience members as Antigone Carruthers from “The Electric Company”. Although primarily an actress, Miss Halston has won awards for her solo comedy pieces which she has performed all over the US including Seattle, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York. Her SRO solo show has been extended five times at NY’s famed Birdland Jazz Club. CBS developed a TV pilot based on her one woman show Julie Halston’s Lifetime of Comedy which she wrote and starred in for over six months Off-Bwy. She received an Outer Critics Circle Nomination for her writing. Along with co-author, Donna Daley, she wrote the critically acclaimed  book, “Monologues for Show-Offs” published by Heinemann Press. It is currently being used by many casting directors, acting teachers and universities as an important resource for actors and is now being developed as a dramatic piece. She lives in New York with her husband, Ralph Howard the anchorman for the Howard Stern news department.

ROBERT PETKOFF (Lord Evelyn Oakleigh).  Recently completed the run of Follies at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre where he played the role of Buddy.  On Broadway he has appeared in: Ragtime, SpamalotFiddler on the RoofEpic Proportions. In the West End: The Royal Family (with Dame Judi Dench).

Directed & choreographed by 2011 Tony® Award winner Kathleen Marshall, Anything Goes will play through Sunday, April 29th, 2012 on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 West 43rd Street).  It was originally scheduled to run through Sunday, July 31st, 2011.

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. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theater’s most memorable standards, including “You're the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get A Kick Out of You,” and “Anything Goes.”

Anything Goes has won the following Awards: three Tony® Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical (Sutton Foster) and Best Choreography (Kathleen Marshall); five Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, Outstanding Choreographer of a Musical (Kathleen Marshall), Outstanding Actress in a Musical (Sutton Foster), Outstanding Set Design (Derek McLane) and Outstanding Sound Design (Brian Ronan); four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, Outstanding Choreographer of a Musical (Kathleen Marshall), Outstanding Actress in a Musical (Sutton Foster), Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical (Adam Godley); A Drama League Award for Distinguished Revival of a Musical and a Fred & Adele Astaire Award for Best Female Dancer on Broadway (Sutton Foster).

Ghostlight Records has released the new Broadway cast recording of Roundabout Theatre Company’s 2011 Tony® Award winning Broadway production Anything Goes. The cast album received a 2012 Grammy Nomination in the category of Best Musical Theatre Album.
