The multi five-starred new London production of ANYTHING GOES will be screened across the UK for two nights only after the end of its run at London’s Barbican Theatre (until November 6th).
For those of you (like me) who are taking your time to return to theatre, you can see it in more than 450 cinemas across the UK on November 28th and December 1st.
The show had been touted for an extensive UK tour after the London run but this appears to have been shelved owing to scheduling problems and the departure of leading lady Sutton Foster (off to do THE MUSIC MAN on Broadway), after the first delay in opening caused scheduling problems which necessitated the departure of originally announced leading lady Megan Mullaly (of WILL AND GRACE fame).
Scheduling problems for regional tours were thrown into utter chaos by the pandemic causing huge numbers of announcements, sudden cancellations and postponements, which has undoubtedly caused a lot of financial hardship to producers and receiving venues alike. I sincerely hope that the touring schedules are able to be maintained without too much interruption, as our industry- and the theatres they serve- depend upon it.

International screenings are to be announced at a later date.
