Broadway Review: ANYTHING GOES

If you had the opportunity to do something that would make you smile for 2 hours and forty-five minutes, you’d do it wouldn’t you? Then get to the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Broadway for the Roundabout Theatre Company’s production of Anything Goes starring Sutton Foster and Joel Grey.

While neither of the aforementioned might ordinarily be considered for the roles of Reno Sweeney and Moonface Martin respectively, these two could sell ice to Eskimos. They sell these characters and their songs with such utter joy, you can’t help but love it.
