Anything Goes is a Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Cole Porter, and a collaboration on the book by multiple authors, including P.G. Wodehouse. The story is a love triangle aboard an ocean liner bound from New York City to London, where nightclub singers, mobsters, heiresses, and Royalty intermingle in a game of mistaken identities and cat and mouse.
