Anything Goes!

I love seeing a play on the stage in Cobb Great Hall of Michigan State University's Wharton Center. The theater seems more intimate with fewer seats than that of Detroit's Fisher or Fox Theaters.

Last night I had the opportunity to share a viewing experience with my friend Jonathon for a performance of Anything Goes.

A winner of three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and Choreography, A.G. is considered one of the greatest musicals in theater history. It features the music of Cole Porters.

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed 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 timeless classic are some of musical theaters most memorable standards, including I Get a Kick Out of You, You're the Top, and of course, Anything Goes.

As a theater geek myself, this show was truly a delight to see!
