Jun. 14-Jul. 7: Anything Goes
The Kennedy Center presents Roundabout Theatre Company’s Anything Goes, a new Broadway revival of Cole Porter’s 1934 musical comedy. When lovers, liars and booze-swigging socialites set sail on a trans-atlantic cruise, they break out of their shells and into song. Featuring classic hits such as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s De-Lovely” and “You’re the Top,” this 2011 Tony Award-winner is on stage through July 7.
