Show details


It's Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it's not all smooth sailing as they head to sea; etiquette is cast-off through the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find true love.

Their journey proves that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing and dancing sailors, a comical disguise, farcical blackmail, and some timeless good fun!

Making her West End debut is renowned actress Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) as Reno Sweeney who will be joined by star of stage and screen Robert Lindsay (My Family), as Moonface Martin.

Kathleen Marshall's previous Tony-Award winning staging of Anything Goes hit the high seas on Broadway, and this stunning production features a joyful score of theatre's most memorable song, including 'I Get A Kick Out of You' and 'You're the Top' is set to be the musical of 2021.
