Not Everything Goes
When Hollywood tries to revive a beloved film, it usually follows a formula: Take a great story, add in a dose of zeitgeisty marketing and try to make it a “hip” revival. Broadway doesn’t need those tricks. Anything Goes is a prime example of a beautifully done Broadway revival, chock full of timeless Cole Porter hits like “It’s De-Lovely.” Though things have been revised since Ethel Merman starred in the 1934 original, Roundabout Theatre gives this classic tale of love and high jinks on an ocean liner a lot of love, winning three Tony Awards in 2011 for their efforts. Catch Anything Goes at the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St., during its limited engagement through February 24. Wednesday’s show begins at 8 p.m.; tickets may be purchased for $30 to $120 at tickets.attpac.org.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 20. Continues through Feb. 24, 2013
