This lively musical comedy spoofs ship-board romances and features a stowaway, a sexy evangelist turned night club singer, a Wall Street banker, and a notorious crook disguised as a minister. With hits like "Anything Goes," "You’re the Top," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Friendship," "It’s De-Lovely," and "Blow, Gabriel, Blow," this frothy, funny, light-hearted romp, is great family fun!

"If you’ve forgotten what it’s like to leave a theater walking on air, a remedy lies ready to hand."
The New York Times
