I have always enjoyed this musical. At first I thought that casting Patti LuPone was a mistake but she brings a mature quality to the role that I enjoy

This CD is based on a 1987 Lincoln Center revival of Cole Porter's venerable ANYTHING GOES (1934), and stars Patti LuPone as Reno Sweeney, the female lead; co-star is Howard McGillin. I must admit this version did not please me, as I had hoped it would. The orchestra is good and strong, orchestration top-notch, but playing is often a little too fast. This in turn makes the singing feel a bit rushed, and when you have the two leads on the title song, each giving out about 200 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance of vibrato, it begins to get a little relentless. A strong delivery is fine, but when they get metronomic and too intense they lose the sparkling charm that Cole Porter's shows are famous for. My favorite version of ANYTHING GOES is still the 1962 revival starring Eileen Rodgers and Hal Linden, still readily available today.

Anything Goes (1962).

I love this music. I saw a local production several years ago and could have gone every night.

OK but pales by comparison to the 1962 off-Broadway recording.

I was worried that I wouldn't be receiving the right recording, but it is the 1987 Patti LuPone version. There are some really cool pictures inside of the show. I ordered this for Anything Goes research and this is the recording.

I was a little disappointed at this version as it wasn't quite what I hoped for. I was hoping for the original treatment of the songs

My son's HS did this production and I purchased it to learn the songs. It was just right for me.
