Ahead of the opening night of the 2022 ANYTHING GOES UK Tour at the Bristol Hippodrome tonight, producers have released a series of ‘First Look’ production images of the new cast in action.
The production stars WhatOnStage Award Winner Kerry Ellis as Reno Sweeney and Olivier Award winner Denis Lawson as Moonface Martin, alongside Olivier Award Winner Simon Callow as Elisha Whitney and Bonnie Langford as Evangeline Harcourt.
Reprising their co-starring roles are Samuel Edwards as Billy Crocker, Carly Mercedes Dyer as Erma (who received an Olivier Award-nomination for her performance), Nicole-Lily Baisden as Hope Harcourt, and Haydn Oakley as Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.
ANYTHING GOES runs at Bristol Hippodrome Theatre until 16th April 2022 before touring to Liverpool Empire Theatre (20th – 30th April 2022), Edinburgh Festival Theatre (11th – 15th May 2022), Dublin Bord Gais Energy Theatre (19th May – 28th May 2022), and Manchester Palace Theatre (9th – 18th June 2022).
The production then sails back to the Barbican Theatre for an eight-week return summer residency from 25th June to 3rd September 2022.
Last year ANYTHING GOES smashed multiple Box Office records at the Barbican Theatre including the single highest grossing performance week for a musical in the Barbican’s 39-year history and the highest sales across a weekend for a musical, as audiences flooded through the doors for the 15-week sold out season!
ANYTHING GOES has music and lyrics by Cole Porter, an original book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton with Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse and a new book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman. This production is directed and choreographed by three time Tony Award Winner Kathleen Marshall.
The creative team includes: Derek McLane (Set Designer), Jon Morrell (Costume Designer), Hugh Vanstone (Lighting Designer), Jonathan Deans (Sound Designer), Stephen Ridley (Music Supervisor), Campbell Young Associates (Hair, Wigs & Make Up), and Serena Hill (Casting Director)
