"Anything Goes" @ Ahmanson followd by dinner @ Flying Pig

Overview: At 2 pm we will see Anything Goes at the Ahmanson followed by dinner at 5:30 pm at the Flying Pig in Little Tokyo.

The play:

Anything Goes

This 1934 musical comedy about the lovers, liars and clowns on a transatlantic cruise is “a daffy, shipshape romp!” - Variety. 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.

Winner! 2011 Tony® Award for Best Musical Cole Porter’s roundup of nostalgic hits in the production include “You’re the Top,” “Friendship,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow” and, of course “Anything Goes.”

Reviews include:

“Rachel York embodies the role with a wink and a purr. Her singing voice combines paint-peeling power with a luxe smoothness, like a ribbon of dark chocolate spiked with cayenne pepper.”
- Cleveland.com

“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

We will be ordering "family style" with the food being shared and the bill split evenly among all attendees.  If you are not comfortable with this then this event is not for you.

The Flying Pig Café at 141 South Central Avenue in Los Angeles features Asian and Pacific Rim cuisine made famous by the Flying Pig Truck and offers street-inspired creations. The menu features a creative spin on traditional Asian dishes and American favorites, melding Eastern and Western flavors.

    Enjoyed Goya, especially, and Picasso to a lesser extent. Thot the docent did a fine job. And dinner at restaurant was great, particularly meeting others in group. I plan to meet you for Anything Goes and dinner next Sat. Is it possible that someone from my "neck of the woods" would like to car pool with for trip to the theater?
