Broadway star Sutton Foster reprises her Tony Award-winning performance as Reno Sweeney and makes her West End debut in P.G. Wodehouse and Cole Porter’s golden age musical, also starring three-time Olivier Award and Tony Award winner Robert Lindsay, Felicity Kendal and Gary Wilmot. Telling the tale of romance aboard the SS American set to a timeless score, Tony-winning choreographer Kathleen Marshall directs the London production featuring timeless hits, including “I Get A Kick Out of You,” “You’re the Top” and “Anything Goes.” When the ship sets out to sea, etiquette and convention dive overboard as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love, proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, disguise and some old-fashioned blackmail.

-How can I calm down?! We're about to spend six days pretending to be something that we're not!

And why? Why?! -So we can hitch a free ride on the world's classiest ocean liner, that's why.

And d'you think you're the only person on this barge pretending to be something that he's not?

Give me a break. -C'mon, Captain, cut the bushwa!

-A-As you no doubt have heard, I'm on my way to the Westminster Conference, where I shall present my two newest converts -- Luke and John.

[ Both humming ] -Luke here was a compulsive gambler.

Who, as a reminder of his former shame, still carries with him a deck of cards.

A-And poor John here was a lost soul who -- -Reno Sweeney! -Alright!

Now we're getting somewhere! -I'll say!

Hey, Reno, what are you doing on board this scow?

-Same thing I do at my nightclub, boys.

I'll be saving sinners twice a night in the ship's lounge.

-I see you brought the sinners with you.

-Meet my Angels.

Purity. -Hi.

-Chastity. -Hi.

-Charity. -Hi.

-And I'm Virtue.

[ Laughter ] -Hi! -Hi!

-The easy kind, no doubt. -Say, brother, was that a pass?

-Miss Sweeney, I have no interest in either you or your fallen Angels.

I'm ashamed to be seen in public with you.

-How 'bout a picture, boys? -Oh, that would e fantastic!

-Coming right up! -Yes, please!

-If you could just hold there.

-Make sure to send a couple to the Archbishop.

-[ Groans ] Luke! John!

-Bye! -I tell you, boys, it ain't easy being New York's most notorious evangelist.

Come, who will lead this sinner beside distilled waters?

[ Laughter ] -What? -What?

-Which way to the bar? -Oh!

Just through there. -Thank you.

-Uh-huh. -Oh! Hey, girls.

Give us the hallelujah! -[ Chuckling ] Yeah!

-[Together] Hallelujah!

-Ooh! -Gorgeous.

-Hey, look! Hope Harcourt! -Oh! Hey, Miss Harcourt.

Are you presiding at the Gold and Silver Ball this year?

-How about the Newport Cotillion?

-Gentlemen, my daughter's debutante days are over.

She's about to be married.

-Married?! -Well, since when? -On the level?! -Yes, it's true.

I'm marrying Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.

We're getting married at St. Paul's Cathedral, and I'm very, very happy.

-Hey, Edith, how about a smooch?

-I beg your pardon?

-Oh, that's a kiss, Your Highness.

-No! How marvelous!

You know, I'm making a collection of expressions you Americans use.

-'A smooch is a kiss.' Hm!

Oh! I say, darling, how 'bout a smooch?

[ Flash bulb pops ] -Egad!

Evangeline Harcourt!

-Elisha Whitney!

-[ Barking ] Down, boy, down!


You haven't changed in 40 years.

-Me? Look at you!

You always did know how to fill a girdle, huh?

-Eli, really!

Have some respect for the memory of my late husband.

-Of course, forgive me.

You know, if it's any consolation, I was just coming out of the Stock Exchange when he took off from that ledge.

[ Laughter ] He jumped like a Yale man.

-Thank you, Eli.

-Boss, your passport. -Oh, my gosh!

-Eli, you know my daughter, Hope.

And this is her fiancé, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.

-Her fiancé?! -German word, Crocker.

It means they're getting married.

-But -- I don't believe it! -I still don't, either.

And yet, a week from now, my little Hope will be a Lady.

-This calls for a drink! Come along, everybody.

-Isn't Mr. Crocker going to join us?

-Yeah, no, no, no.

He's got a date down on Wall Street.

Get going, Crocker, and sell those shares.

-Yes, sir. -This way, my dear.

-Hope, wait... [ Whistle blows ] -All ashore that's going ashore!

All ashore that's going ashore!

-Who is God?

The creator of all things.

-Where is God? -God is everywhere.

-And what does God know?

-Who's gonna win the Kentucky Derby!

[ Laughs ] -You. Have you seen a minister?

-A what?


We're looking for a gangster dressed up like a minister.

You seen him?

-Uh, yeah, he went that way. -Show us.

-Well, I gotta see somebody in the bar... -Show us. -Show us.

-Look, guys, come on, I really-- -Come on! Let's go!

-...don't have time for this. -Was it this way?

-Yeah, yeah. -This is ridiculous! Come on!

-Psst! Moonie!

The coast is clear.

-[Echoing] Erma?

[ Laughter ] Erma?! Hey!

Are we in England yet?

-Where's Snake Eyes? He hasn't showed.

-Ah, to hell with Snake Eyes!

Come on, he's public enemy number one -- can take care of himself, gimme that.

-Oh, my God, you don't suppose the cops nabbed him?

I gotta find him! Snake Eyes!

Snake Eyes! -Quiet! Quiet!

We're trying to make a getaway here, okay?

-Mm-hmm. [ Screaming ] Snake Eyes!


Now look what you made me do.

That's my 'straddlevarious.'

-Ah! -Oh, wow, wow!

-A fellow cleric! -Nope! I'm outta here!

-Allow me to introduce myself, Doctor.

The Reverend Henry T. Dobson. -Yeah.

-Are you on your way to the conference?

-No, I was thinking of going to bed early tonight, okay?

-Oh, I-I mean the Westminster Conference.

-No, no. You see, I'm not a West Minister, [ Sniffs ] I'm more in the East.

[ Laughter ] -Oh, what is your field, Doctor?

-Me, I'm a kinda missionary, you know.

-A missionary?! Where? -Way out in China.

-Oh, I served in China for years!

-Oh, wow, that's amazing, yeah... well, I wasn't actually in China, I was more, um... -Ah, I see.

You were in Indochina. -That's right, I was.

It was Indoor China.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. -[ Laughs ] -Yeah, yeah. And you were... -Outdoor China! [ Both laugh ] -That's so funny, yeah. -Yes.

Eh, we'll have lots to talk about.

-Sure. -[ Speaking Chinese ] -I'm sorry?

-[ Speaking Chinese ] -Yeah, you took the words right out of my mouth.

-Oh! -Hey, there he is!

-No, no, no, no! -FBI!

Gotcha, Moon!

-Un-- Unhand me this instant!

I am the Reverend Henry T. Dobson!

-Yeah, save it for the judge, buddy.

-Oh, my God, they're taking him away!

He's gone! He's gone! What're we gonna do?! -Excuse me, Captain.

Is there a casino on this ship?

-[ Chuckling ] Why, no.

-There is now! [ Laughs ] -Luke! Stop!

What are you doing?! We're gonna end up in the brig!

-I just wanted to say 'bon voyage' to the lady, Boss. -Hey, kid!

-You know, you are beautiful when you're about to faint.

-Billy, I didn't know you were sailing!

-Well, I didn't either.

-Then what are you doing here? -I'm selling life preservers.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, Hope. I stowed away to be with you.

I couldn't let you go.

-Oh, Billy!

-[ Groaning ] Ohh! -Oh! Billy.

Eh, this is my fiancé, Evelyn Oakleigh.

-Ah! Billy Crocker.

Pleased to meet you! -Forgive me, forgive me.

I'm afraid I rather overdid it in the dining room.

-Oh, yeah, me too! Did you have the sweetbreads?

Best brains I ever ate! -Billy... -Although, I've never seen them served that way before, with jellied eels and headcheese.

-Billy, stop it! -Night, all!

-Billy, was that fair? -Fair?

I find you standing here in the moonlight with him.

I didn't shoot him, I didn't push him overboard.

I thought I was more than fair. [ Chuckles ] -You're being terribly bad, Billy.

Why, we hardly know each other.

-Hardly know each other?

-We met one night at a party.

We danced, had a little too much wine.

We took a little spin 'round the park.

-You call five hours in the back of a taxi a little spin?

-Four hours. -Five.

I bust in, I catch him tearing your clothes off, and then we blackmail him into breaking off the engagement.

Billy, what have you done?

-Hope, I can explain everything.

It's Evelyn.

He's Edna.

Half the women in New York are crazy about him.

Why, just the other night, one of the best-looking dames I know practically proposed to him.

-She did? Well, who was she?


[ Laughter ] -[ Crying ] -Oh, I'm sorry.

Forgive me. I just can't help it.

Oh, if only I'd have told him how I really feel.

-How's that?

-I'm crazy about him.


-I said I'm crazy about him!

Oh, this is tragic. I've ruined my life.

[ Grunts ] We are assembled here to join together in the bonds of holy matrimony this young man and -- -Cease and desist! -Cease and desist!

-Cease and desist! -Cease and desist!

-Good Lord, what is this?

-My colleague and I are barristers from the firm of Treacle, Treacle, and Custard.

We've offices in New York, London, and Singapore.

We demanded a hearing on behalf of our distinguished clients.

-Distinguished clients?

-Permit me to explain.

My clients have just completed an extensive peregrination in order to confer most urgently with this English gentleman.

It appears we have arrived in, as it were, the nick of time!

-I'm afraid, if you've come in reference to my Hong Kong interests, you've chosen a bad moment.

I'm about to be married.

-Uh, the marriage is impossible.

-Impossible?! What on earth do you mean?! -Allow me to introduce the mortified father of little Plum Blossom.

-And who is little Plum Blossom?

-Yes, who is little Plum Blossom?

-Uh, this is little Plum Blossom.

♪♪ ♪♪ -I'm not sure I follow this.

-Lord Evelyn took Plum Blossom to Willow Grove, returned with a plum tart.

-Dear me, is this really true? -I'm afraid so.

-Evelyn! Is this woman really Plum Tart Blossom?

-I-I can't really say.

It all happened so long ago-- Oh, good Lord!

[ Chuckles ] Apologies to one and all, but under the circumstances, I don't see how I can possible marry Miss Harcourt.

-Don't be ridiculous. All these people want is money.

I'll give ya $1,000 to clear out.

-Yeah, we'll take it. -No!

-Do not insult our clients with an offer of filthy money!

-I'll make it $2,000. -You cannot buy their honor.

-I'll make it $5,000.

-Yeah, yeah, honor sold.

-No, Mr. Whitney don't pay him!

No amount of money can undo this great wrong!

You, sir, you are related to little Plum Blossom?

-Like an O'Neil drama to Whistler's Mama.

-Then the only way to repay this debt of honor, Evelyn, is for you to offer him me!

-Hope, no!

-Oh, I say, what a marvellous idea!

-Huh? Offer accepted!

-Congratulations, old boy. You're getting quite a girl.

-Yeah, what about the five grand?

-Say, why does the English gentlemen not join the club and right the wrong done to poor Plum Blossom, huh?

-Right the wrong done to poor Plum Bl-- Oh, I say! [ Laughs ] Well, confound it, why not?

Now, look here...Plum Blossom... will you marry me?

-Oh, sweetie, I thought you'd never ask!

-[ Laughs ] -[ Sobs ] -Why, mother, what's the matter?

-What's the matter?

We're poor again!

I shall have to spend the rest of my life living in hotels!

-Like hell you will!

Marry me, Evangeline!

Say yes and spend the rest of your life in the lap of luxury.

Why, after that Amalgamated deal, I'm so damn rich I could buy this tub and turn it into a private yacht for you.


My saviour!

My knight in shining armor!

-Uh, Mr. Whitney?

-Uh...Oh, thank you... Crocker.

-Yes, sir.

-Crocker?! How the hell did you get on board?

-I have a confession to make.

I never made it to the Stock Exchange.

I-I stowed away aboard this ship.

I never sold those Amalgamated shares.

-You never sold the shares? You never sold the shares?! [ Gasping ] That means -- That means I'm ruined!

Ruined! [ Sobbing ] Ohh!

-Oh, I-I'm sorry, boss.

-Oh, well, at least I have someone to comfort me in my misfortune.

-Well... -Mr. Whitney? Mr. Whitney?

Urgent cable from New York, sir.

Amalgamated just went through the roof.

You're a zillionaire!

-Eli! [ Laughs ] -How do you do it, boss?
