Rhumbelow Classics Cinema will present a re-run of the movie Anything Goes which was filmed live at the Barbican, London, in October 2021.

The screening will take place on May 6, 2022, at 19h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks) Running time: 156 Minutes (including interval)

This major new 5-star production of the classic musical comedy features an all-star cast led by renowned Broadway royalty Sutton Foster reprising her Tony Award-winning performance as Reno Sweeney, alongside three-time Olivier Award and Tony Award winner Robert Lindsay (My Family), Evening Standard Theatre Award winner Felicity Kendal (The Good Life) and beloved West End Legend Gary Wilmot (Chicago).

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, a comical disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.

This hilarious musical romp across the Atlantic, directed by the multi-award-winning Broadway director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall, features Cole Porter’s joyful score, including I Get A Kick Out of You, You’re the Top and the show stopping Anything Goes.

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter from the original book by P G Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse. New Book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman

Directed and choreographed by Tony Award Winner Kathleen Marshall.

Comment from Caroline Smart (artSMart Editor) from the first showing:

I had a great time yesterday afternoon, enjoying “Anything Goes”, one of the films in Rhumbelow Theatre’s Classic Film series. I went specially to see multi-award-winning Robert Lindsay who I once saw in a straight drama on a trip to England. I also know him well from films he’s been in and the comedy TV series “My Family” but I had no idea that he was such a good dancer/mover. Strong cast, great performances all round, full of energy, And some impressive ensemble dance pieces.
