This North Coast Weekend
Tonight (Thursday Nov. 15) North Coast Rep opens the classic Cole Porter musical, Anything Goes. Like many movies of the period, this 1934 show is an escapist comedy involving love and high jinks among the hilariously wealthy. This time some romantic criminals are added to the mix-ups aboard an ocean liner, with Cole Porter tunes that are simultaneously topical and timeless. Its latest Tony Award-winning Broadway revival was in 2011.
Lauren Wieland directs the NCRT production featuring Eric Standifird, Keili Simmons Marble (also the dance director), Clayton Cook, Molly Severdia (also the music director) and David Simms. Anything Goes plays for a solid month of weekends, November 15-December 15. Tickets and information: 442-6278. www.ncrt.net.
This is the last weekend for Dusty and the Big, Bad World at Redwood Curtain.
