When it comes to the Big White Way, there's nothing that razzles and dazzles better than the classics, including the long-time favorite, "Anything Goes."
"Anything Goes" recently won three Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical at the 2011 Tonys. It's the story of a love triangle aboard the S.S. American en route from New York to England, with Cole Porter's timeless songs like "Anything Goes," "You're the Top," and "It's De-lovely."
Colin Donnell, who plays "Billy Crocker" and Laura Osnes who plays "Hope Harcourt," stopped by "The Early Show on Saturday Morning" 's Second Cup Cafe to perform "It's De-lovely" and "I Get A Kick Out Of You."
So how does this love triangle unfold?
"Anything Goes" is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is heading from New York to England. Her pal, Billy Crocker, has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin, and his sidekick-in-crime, Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope's heart, according to the musical's website.
"Anything Goes" has been going places - besides its three Tonys, it's also taken home five Drama Desk Awards and four Outer Critics Circle Awards.
