In this modern masterwork -- critically praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht -- the great Irish writer George Bernard Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter. She's a Salvation Army major; he's an arms manufacturer and whiskey distiller -- on certain issues, they could not disagree more. But when he begins donating money to her organization, matters come to a head as the characters grapple with questions of business, faith, family and philanthropy. After 16 years, A.C.T. brings Shaw back to the stage with this co-production with Theatre Calgary, one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, featuring an international cast of Canadian and American actors.

The show is really, really great. I would definitely go again. The theater is very hot, so dress in layers that you can take off once you get inside. Also, do not plan on eating around the theater. It is smarter to eat in a better part of the city and then run to the theater as quickly as possible to avoid confrontations with those that occupy this section of SF. I was eating at an establishment around the theater and a homeless woman came in and stole the sandwich I was eating from my hands. But the show itself is fantastic.

- “Rachel York and the all-singing/all-dancing company of Anything Goes took me up to the heavenly gates with their spectacular performance.” --BroadwayWorld.com
- “I challenge you to find a natural high greater than the first-act finale of Anything Goes, a giddy layer cake of tap-dancing sailors atop Cole Porter lyrics.” --The New Yorker

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.
