A lovelorn stowaway, an heiress, a Lord and a public enemy collide in the Duluth Playhouse’s production of the Cole Porter musical “Anything Goes,” which opens today.

There will be so many mistaken identities aboard the S.S. American, a floating venue rich with a whole lot of silliness and romance.

“Anything Goes” opened on Broadway in 1934 with Ethel Merman at the core. Expect to hear songs like “Anything Goes,” “I Get a Kick out of You” and “You’re the Top.”

The Playhouse brought in Ivey Award-winning director Michael Matthew Ferrell to direct. (And if you dig what he does, you’re in luck:  You’ll want to see the holiday show he’s directing at the end of 2014 at the Playhouse).
