Broadway musical, “Anything Goes” takes the stage 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Keith Albee Performing Arts Center.

“Anything Goes” is the winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and Best Choreography.

Cole Porter, American composer and songwriter, created the musical comedy that celebrates the 1930s.

The musical follows the highs and lows of the characters aboard the S.S. America as they head out to sea and two unlikely couples set off on the course to true love.

Roy Flores, who plays Luke, said he loves how diverse the show is for the audience.

“It’s great because people can relate to this play,” Flores said. “Everyone can see someone similar to themselves.”

Flores said he loves being on tour with the show.

I love musicals, and I have heard how hilarious this one is, so I’m really excited to see it.”

“I was nervous at first to be gone so long,” Flores said. “We started in October of last year, but I found out that I loved traveling because I get to see all these different theaters that are a lot of the time national landmarks.”

Flores’ character, Luke, is a secondary character who is always one step ahead of everyone on the ship.

“He is really cunning and a guy that I can really relate to,” Flores said. “Luke is a Chinese convert and since I was born in the Philippines and came here at 14, it’s easy for me to relate to Luke and get into character.”

Marshall student Taylor Anderson has every intention to attend the show.

“I can’t wait to see it,” Anderson said. “I love musicals, and I have heard how hilarious this one is, so I’m really excited to see it.”

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have remastered the musical’s music and score.

The show started its tour in October of last year. The show finishes up the North American tour May 31 and will return to New York to finish on Broadway.

Tickets are free for Marshall students and can be picked up at the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse.
