The Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway revival of Anything Goes, starring Stephanie J. Block and Joel Grey, will close on July 8 rather than the originally announced date of August 5. The Tony-winning production opened at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on April 7, 2011.
Featuring music and lyrics by Cole Porter, an original book by P.G. Wodehouse, Guy Bolton, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse and a new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman, Anything Goes is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall. The show won 2011 Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical, Best Choreography and Best Actress (original star Sutton Foster as Reno Sweeney).
In addition to Block and Grey, Anything Goes stars Erin Mackey, John McMartin, Julie Halston, Bill English, Robert Petkoff, Joyce Chittick, Ed Dixon, Robert Creighton, Andrew Cao and Raymond J. Lee.
Anything Goes will launch a national tour beginning October 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio, starring Rachel York. The touring company will perform in more than 20 cities in 2012-2013.
