LA Times says: 'Anything Goes' is 'the top' at the Ahmanson Theatre
“Rachel York is a true star”
“Could tap-dancing possibly be as fun as Rachel York makes it look? She and the cast of the Roundabout Theatre Company’s Tony-winning Broadway revival of ‘Anything Goes’ perform the show’s exuberant title number with such saucy, effortless flair and megawatt smiles that I found myself thinking, ‘I’m signing up for lessons’ — I, who get winded riding an escalator in heels. Kathleen Marshall has dazzlingly reinvigorated a classic escapist treat.” More online at LATimes.com

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes 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, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.
Anything Goes got rave reviews across America and again in Los Angeles.
“Rachel York embodies the role with a wink and a purr. Her singing voice combines paint-peeling power with a luxe smoothness, like a ribbon of dark chocolate spiked with cayenne pepper.”
“Rachel York and the all-singing/all-dancing company of Anything Goes took me up to the heavenly gates with their spectacular performance.”
