Details of Anything Goes and the Ticket Luck value
From within the land of musicals, the musical Anything Goes has made its presence known for over nine decades and it is a highly popular musical, a comedy that delights viewers with its hilarious antics. The musical itself had music as well as lyrics written by Cole Porter and the story is based on a book written by the fabled P.G Wodehouse, renowned for his marvelous ‘comedy’ fiction and Guy Bolton. The story was adapted and revised by a team made up of Russel Crouse and Howard Lindsay so as to fit the musical. The basic storyline of this plays follows the various mad antics of one Billy Crocker who is basically a stowaway on an ocean liner, which is the setting for the whole musical, and his love for the heiress Hope Harcourt who is, unfortunately, more or less engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Billy Crocker is then assisted by a singer, Reno Sweeney, and a thug, Moonface Martin commonly known as Public Enemy #13. In short, a musical on a story by P.G Wodehouse, the epitome of classic English humor, is more than enough reason to justify the purchase of Anything Goes tickets.This fabulous musical also resulted in the introduction of songs like Anything Goes, I Get A Kick Out of You and You’re the Top. The musical debuted occurred in 1934 in what is present day Neil Simon Theatre, known as the Alvin those days, on Broadway. This musical has been subject to revival various times in both the US and the UK and it is also a popular choice for plays produced in both schools and in neighborhoods and communities. The title of the play itself was subject to several changes – the final title’s birth is pretty much theatre legend. Why? Because in the haste in which the show was ‘revamped’ due to several reasons that include changing of the story due to a recent ocean liner accident, which was unfortunate for the play since the ocean liner in the play was in a near-accident situation, the name came up when an exasperated member of the production asked how they were going to get the first act ready before the play – one of the producers responded by ‘anything goes!’ and before he knew it, the name was labeled on this musical.The full story behind the musical is epic in itself – and it shall be described for the reader’s convenience. The story begins with Billy Crocker, a Wall Street broker, falling in love with a girl he meets in a taxi, a girl whose identity he doesn’t know. Coincidentally, Billy’s boss, Elisha, and his friend, Reno Sweeney who is a nightclub singer are leaving for London aboard the ocean liner, S.S American. It is during this farewell that Billy sees the so-called mysterious girl who he fell in love with boarding the ocean liner – and finds out that she is Hope Harcourt, an heiress traveling alongwith her mother and fiancé, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh – a British noble. As such, Billy stows away on the ship side by side with a faux minister and missionary who are actually Moonface Martine, labeled as Public Enemy #13 and his friend, Bonnie. These two characters leave behind the actual ship’s chaplain as well as Moonface’s boss, Snake Eyes Johnson who is Public Enemy #1.Billy, unknowingly, aids the faux missionary and minister onto the ship and in gratitude they give him Snake Eyes Johnson’s passport as well as ticket but don’t tell him about the original owner of both the ticket and the passport. Billy then meets up with Hope who, coincidentally, has also been thinking about Billy. However, Hope tells Billy that she prefers Billy over Evelyn but has to marry Billy – although she neglects to mention that this is due to the financial troubles faced by her family’s company. Disaster strikes when the crew of this ship learn, via a cable from New York, that the Public Enemy #1 is on board the ocean liner. As such, Billy is now suspect and the duo missionary and minister reveal their identities to Billy and help disguise him anew.And as such, Billy continues on his attempt at wooing Hope with numerous antics surrounding him – including a purported affair between Lord Evelyn and Reno. Conclusively, a play that is the epitome of English humor and if that is what tickles your fancy, to use an English expression, Anything Goes tickets are what you should get.
