“I have always been a great fan of Anything Goes. It's wonderful fun and perfectly constructed,” said Ms. York. “I'm really looking forward to playing Reno Sweeney in this fabulous production by Kathleen Marshall and to share some of my favorite Cole Porter classics with the country.”
“Our priority with the national tour of Anything Goes is to maintain the quality we currently have with the Broadway production,” said Todd Haimes, Artistic Director of the Roundabout Theatre Company. “The role of ‘Reno’ must be played by a triple threat actress who can act, sing and dance. We are so happy to have Rachel York lead the company. Rachel will mesmerize audiences across the country with her outstanding performance.”
Rachel York is best known for her critically acclaimed Broadway performances in City of Angels, Les Misérables, Victor/Victoria (Drama Desk Award), The Scarlet Pimpernel, Sly Fox, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. She also turned heads on television with her courageous portrayal of Lucille Ball in the CBS movie, “Lucy.”
