Broadway in Chicago review: Anything Goes

Broadway in Chicago continues to stock the Windy City with classic musicals. Anything Goes, currently running at the Cadillac Palace Theatre (151 West Randolph St.) through May 5th, differs from the other Broadway in Chicago musicals through it's nostalgia and dancing. TICKETS

The 1934 musical comedy places gangsters, a singer, a Wall Street investor and his employee, who's trying to win over the girl of his dreams before it's too late, all on the same ship. The 30's references and some of the dialects successfully take you back in time.

The dancing numbers are big and fantastic. One included the best tap dancing I've ever seen in a play. A lot of the dialogue and lines in the play hilariously hold up and stand the test of time as well. The ensemble, composed of the ship's sailors  were a staple of the show. Their singing and dancing alone is worth catching the show to see.

This is a short Broadway in Chicago run, so if you feel inclined to see the show, grab tickets fast.
