It’s 1934 and you’re going on a wild transatlantic cruise full of sex, booze, God, and gangsters. New Line continues its 27th season with the rowdy, naughty, subversive masterpiece of musical comedy, Cole Porter’s Anything Goes, a stinging satire of Americans’ quirky habit of turning religion into show business and criminals into celebrities, along the way skewering Wall Street, Prohibition, Old Money Brits, and a few other ripe targets. Anything Goes is a masterful mashup of musical comedy, gangaster movie, screwball comedy, and social satire. Anything Goes fearlessly ripped open the American psyche and spilled it all out onto a Broadway stage. And the American pysche hasn’t changed that much since 1934. Despite its reputation as fluff, the show is a whip-smart satire of American “cafe society” (the 1% of 1934), with the steamship S.S. American standing in for Shakespeare’s woods, a place with no rules, where people find out who they really are and “correct” the mistakes they’ve made in the world of the City.
