WHO/WHAT: Dubbed Hawai‘i’s “Broadway of the Pacific,” Diamond Head Theatre has been entertaining for over a century. The hit Broadway musical “Anything Goes,” will be the theater’s last play in the historic old Fort Ruger Theatre before moving to their adjacent new theater early next year. The musical is set on the S.S. American, where nightclub singer and evangelist Reno Sweeney sets sail to England. Her friend Billy Crocker stows away to be near Hope Harcourt, but unfortunately, Hope is engaged. Joining the love triangle are passengers Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick, Erma. Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest for Hope’s heart, with the help of elaborate disguises and tap-dancing sailors, wrapped around Cole Porter’s musical score, featuring popular songs like “Anything Goes,” “I Get a Kick Out of You” and “Easy to Love.” Masks are required.
WHEN/WHERE: Friday, Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 25., Diamond Head Theatre, 520 Makapu’u Ave.
