Review: Classic Cole Porter tunes in 'Anything Goes'

Beef and Boards musical is fast-paced and fun-filled

(Continued)

The first half of the show features dance numbers that are reminiscent of Fred and Ginger Rogers as couples dance beautifully and elegantly across the boards. Act 2 unleashes bigger numbers with the large cast tapping wildly – and expertly – around one another.

Jack Milo pulls off the 1930’s gangster routine perfectly. As Moonface Martin, he is making his getaway aboard the ship. He lays low until he discovers his celebrity status comes with some serious perks.

Jeff Stockberger, a favorite on the Beef and Boards stage for his comedic timing, plays Hope’s fiancé with mannerisms that has the audience in stitches. He consistently uses his large size and exaggerated expressions for full effect.

Bursting with energy, the cast’s excitement is infectious. With a fast-paced, fun-filled show that doesn’t take itself too seriously, patrons will be tapping their toes as they enjoy “Anything Goes.”

If you go What: "Anything Goes" Where: Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Road, Indianapolis When: Now through May 11 Cost: $37.50-$62.50 (includes Chef Odell Ward's dinner buffet) For more information: call 317-872-9664 or visit www.beefandboards.com
