Stream Broadway Shows and Musicals: Filmed on Stage

ANYTHING GOES with Sutton Foster coming to cinemas November 28th

Sutton Foster and the cast of the London revival of Anything Goes filmed regularly scheduled performances this week at the Barbican Theatre ahead of a cinema release and a potential streaming deal for the musical.

Here's all we know about the Anything Goes cinema screening:

 

 

Foster, who won her second Tony for her work as Reno Sweeney in the 2011 Broadway revival of Anything Goes, stepped into the role created by the late Ethel Merman this summer at London’s Barbican Theatre and received rave reviews.

Anything Goes Producer Howard Panter, who is also the Creative Director of Trafalgar Entertainment, filmed "The King and I" starring another Broadway star, Kelli O'Hara, in 2018.

The London revival will be screened in UK cinemas November 28th - 30th with a final screening on December 1st. While screening times vary by venue, most will begin at 7:30PM. The recorded performance runs 155 minutes and will combine footage from three performances recorded live at the Barbican Centre.

Further screening dates along with worldwide release news (which is expected) will be released by mid-next week.

"Anything Goes" will follow the same path of "The King and I" that was filmed for worldwide distribution through Trafalgar Releasing and other partner distribution channels, such as BroadwayHD.
