I had no idea there was going to be a revival of Anything Goes! How exciting! It is definitely a favorite of mine. It was my first high school show and I played one of Reno's angels. I definitely think Sutton is going to rock that part!! I am hoping I can make it to NYC to see it.

I don't know the show very well, but I love her! I'd heard a rumor that she would only do new shows, so it's nice to know that's not true...

I don't 'get' Sutton Foster- she has been in a load of shows but is she really a 'star'?

There seems to be something missing to me.

So the prospect of seeing her headline this revival isn't as exciting as I wish it were.

I love her! I've only seen her live once (her cabaret-style tour), but she was spectacular. Even my mom, who had no interest in her beforehand, came out loving her.

To everyone I believe 35 and younger: Check out the Hiptix program. Great seats, pre-ordered for $20. This is for all Roundabout productions. It's really a great program.

In other news, I am very excited for this! I was wondering what Roundabout's big musical was going to be this year!

I love Sutton Foster, but I think she's a bit too young and ingenue looking to pull of Reno right now.

I can see her as a great Erma.

Agreed on the Erma thing, Dawn, but isn't it way too soon for another Anything Goes revival? :?

The last one was over twenty years ago?

Yes, but the fact remains that Anything Goes has had two major revivals in the past 40 years. It doesn't need a third. There are other shows that have not even had one.

I've been saying for FOREVER that Sutton would be a great Reno Sweeney.
Maybe she is a bit too young though...hmm. We shall see, I suppose. :)
Exciting news!

I totally missed this. I suppose it's cause I was on vacation, without internet connection when it was announced. How exciting! I thought of Elliott when I heard, 'cause I knew he wanted this to happen. haha. Anything Goes definitely needed a revival, in my opinion. But Kathleen Marshall?? :? I too, thought Sutton was only interested in doing original shows? It's great that this marks a first for her since her big break. I can definitely see her in more revivals of classics.
