**** Highly Recommended **** I’m so happy I went to see Music Theater Works’ new production of “Anything Goes”, it had me smiling from the very first number, “I Get a Kick Out of You”. Call me old-fashioned, but I love those old Broadway musicals with silly stories, catchy tunes and clever lyrics, the kind Cole Porter wrote. Obviously that means that one of my all-time favorites has to be “Anything Goes”, with its silly story with a ‘happily ever after’ and all those wonderful Cole Porter tunes. 4 BIG Spotlights
