Atlanta Lyric Theatre Kicks Off their season with the Cole Porter classic ANYTHING GOES September 21 – October 7 at The Earl Smith Strand Theatre in downtown Marietta (117 N. Park Square).

ANYTHING GOES has won six Tony awards, as well as the 2011 Drama Desk Awards for Best Revival, Best Choreography and Best Actress, and the 1987 Outer Critic’s Drama Award and Drama Desk Award for Best Revival.  The musical also introduced several songs that have become legendary standards, such as “Anything Goes,” “It’s De-lovely,” “Friendship,” “You're the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”

Debuting in 1934 in the midst of the Depression, ANYTHING GOES became an instant success, running for over 400 performances.  This age-old tale of boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-meets-another-girl, boy-gets-one-of-the-girls, done as a zany shipboard musical, features the brilliant words and music of the incomparable Cole Porter.  It has remained an audience favorite, playing to Off-Broadway audiences in 1962, then returning to Broadway in 1987 and 2011.  ANYTHING GOES also had a successful run in England’s West End in 1982 and was revived there in 2002.

When Billy Crocker learns his ex-fiancée, Hope, is onboard the S.S. American, he stows away to try and win her back, not knowing that Hope is heading to England to marry the very wealthy Sir Evelyn Oakleigh.  Meanwhile, Billy’s friend, evangelist turned nightclub singer Reno Sweeney, turns her sights upon Sir Evelyn Oakleigh.  To remain on board the ship, Billy borrows an unused ticket and passport from incognito gangster Moon Face Martin, disguising himself as the gangster’s missing confederate.  Will Billy get Hope?  Will Reno get Sir Evelyn?  Will Billy be taken into custody, along with Moon Face?  This madcap romantic comedy is filled with music, dance, mistaken identities, and hilarity.  It promises to deliver a fun-filled evening of theatre for all.

All performances will be held at The Earl Smith Strand Theatre at 117 N. Park Sq., on the historic Marietta Square. For tickets and information call
