1. What do you like about Anything Goes? Or, if you're not a fan, what makes it unmemorable for you? the porter score, the classy witty script

2. Pick your favourite song in Anything Goes and tell us why it's your favourite? Gypsy in Me. its very clever and worsk both for hope in the original and Lord Evelyn in the 1987 revival.

3. Cole Porter is famous for his lyrics. What is your favourite lyric in Anything Goes?

"so worth the yearning for
so swell to keep every homefire burning for.
we'd be so grand at the game
so carefree together
that it does seem a shame
that you can't see
your future with me
for you'd be oh, so easy to love."


4. Got a number you just can't stand? Tell us why. nothing from the original score. but even Cole Himself wasnt fond of the rather trite 'Lets Step Out" which adds nothing to the 1962 revival.

5. Which version of Anything Goes do you like best? 1987 revival

6. What are your feelings about Anything Goes on film? I liked having Merman in the 1936 film but its a shame they cut all but 4 of Porter's songs.

7. Which is your favourite cast recording of Anything Goes? 1936 london or 1987 Broadway revival

8. Who is your favorite character in Anything Goes? Lord Evelyn

9. Who is your favourite Anything Goes-related performer? William Gaxton

10. How do you feel about the forthcoming 2011 Broadway revival of the show? its not neeeded with other Portr shows like DuBarry Was a Lady,Silk Stocking,and Out of this World NEVER having had a revival yet!

Agreed on the last one, Dawn. It is way too soon for another Anything Goes revival.

One lyric from the show that I really like is in "You're the Top."

"You're a rose,
You're Inferno's Dante!
You're the nose
On the great Durante!"

:D
