Anything Goes Announces Encore Cinema Screenings; Streaming Ends in 10 Days

Our favorite live capture of 2021, London's Anything Goes starring Sutton Foster, is coming back to cinemas!

Audiences in the UK will get another chance to watch Foster's masterful performances as Reno Sweeney in the hit revival this March. The film was last seen in cinemas in November 2021 and was later picked up by the BBC for its 2021 Christmas lineup. 

Not in the UK? No worries. There are 10 days left to stream the show for free in the US and Canada. A physical release of the recording is also in the works and will be released this year. 

Here are all the details on the Encore presentation of Anything Goes, and all other ways to watch the musical:



Anything Goes returns to cinemas around the UK and Ireland on March 15 and 19 thanks to encore screenings set by Trafalgar Entertainment. The musical will screen in most locations at 7PM and will have additional showings based on local demand.

The full list of locations can now be found on the official Anything Goes website.

If you prefer watching the musical on the small screen, US viewers have 10 days left to stream Anything Goes for free thanks to PBS Great Performances. A direct link to the stream can be found in our growing list of free musicals and plays.

Viewers in the UK can still stream the production through BBC's iPlayer here. The BBC stream might be taken off the platform in anticipation of the encore screenings.

Also coming in March is the DVD and Blu-Ray release of the musical from Liberator Studios. Anything Goes will be released on physical media in the US on a region-free DVD and Blu-Ray (similarly to past musicals such as Kinky Boots, An American in Paris, and 42nd Street).

The DVD and Blu-Ray are now available to pre-order through most retailers.



The filmed production is a record of the recent London revival - a remounting of the Tony Award-winning Broadway revival from 2011.

Released to cinemas during the holiday season of 2021, Anything Goes also stars three-time Olivier Award and Tony Award winner Robert Lindsay, as well as Felicity Kendal, and Gary Wilmot. The show was filmed live at the Barbican Theatre during its first sold-out limited engagement.

Producer Howard Panter of Trafalgar Entertainment remounted the production following the hugely successful London revival of Lincoln Center's The King and I with Kelli O'Hara in 2018.

Similarly to Anything GoesThe King and I was filmed towards the end of its run at the London Palladium.

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.

The creative team for the London revival includes set designer Derek McLane, costume designer Jon Morrell, music director and supervisor Stephen Ridley, lighting designer Hugh Vanstone, sound designer Jonathan Deans, and orchestrator Michael Gibson (with additions by Bill Elliott), and wig designer Campbell Young.

Dance arrangements are by David Chase, vocal arrangements by Rob Fisher, associate direction by Ian Waller, associate choreography by Carol Lee Meadows, associate set design by Ben Davies, associate costume design by Jan Bench, casting by Serena Hill, associate musical direction by Mark Aspinall, associate production management by Tom McEvilly and props supervision by Mary Halliday and Lisa Buckley.
