Transcript: 1 2 p b Y g X J Anything Goes (2011) “Anything Goes” Choreographer: Kathleen Marshall Performers: Sutton Foster and Company My Favorite Broadway Show I The Buzz About the Show The image from before is from a recent Broadway revival that has been turning many heads since it opened last year in April. Since today’s New Year’s Day, I encourage you to make a resolution to treat yourself to the show. Sutton Foster is seen playing Reno Sweeny, a “goofy and sexy, shrugging insouciant and rigorously polished” (Brantley, 2011) evangelist/night club singer who is aboard the S.S. American. The story is built around her quest to help her friend Billy Crocker win the heart of Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh (Broadway, 2011) However, if the story isn’t enticing enough, perhaps the mostly positive reviews from critics and casual watchers alike will be enough to motivate you (Broadway World, 2011) The show was nominated for several awards and it even won some significant awards such as the “2011 Best Revival of a Musical” Tony Award and “2011 Outstanding Revival of a Musical” Drama Desk Award (Internet Broadway Database, n.d.) All in all, the show is guaranteed to be worth your time and the price as you are definitely in for a “giddy, goofy and googly experience” (Sheward, 2011) H About this Dance The dance I analyzed was “Anything Goes”. Sequentially, it occurs just at the end of Act I and it serves as a crucial outlet in the storyline to express everyone’s sentiment at that moment. Around the time of this dance, Billy, who is trying to win Hope’s heart, disguises himself in several ways to be secretly close to Hope. However, just around the time of the dance, Billy is recognized by one of the members aboard the ship. Pridefully, Billy reveals his true identity and since he is a celebrity, everyone is thrilled to have him aboard. Hope, his love, on the other hand, thinks Billy assumed one disguises too many (Brown, n.d.) Reno Sweeny, through this dance number, summarizes everyone’s feeling after this discovery by emphasizing that truly, anything goes, even a celebrity assuming several identities to win his love. Energetic and vibrant would be the two perfect words to describe not only the performance itself but also how the dance makes you feel after watching it. Sutton Foster’s expressions, voice, and excitement were essential to the performance’s influence. The fruition of the cast’s dedication and arduous work was evident in their seamless and perfectly in-sync steps. The most innovative part was probably the integration of taps with independent and loose upper body movements. It kept the attention of the audience and provided a refreshing experience by not restricting the performance to a designated and static spot. Moreover, the choreography utilized the entire stage to incorporate effective and sometimes quirky dance moves into the performance, giving the performers and choreographer room to express freely. The set and the costume choice were great because it is reminiscent of a performance that one might see on a cruise ship. Finally, the music (particularly the lyrics) was also a nice icing on the already delicious cake. Its upbeat and fast moving pace paired perfectly with the energetic dance of the performers. G Role of the Dance in the Show I think the dance was included in the show to make a concept or thought visual and concrete. Specifically, the concept is the title of the song, anything goes. This carefree and accepting attitude is visually evident throughout the dance number in various forms. The primary evidence of this shows up in the form of various loose body movements of the performers. The lack of rigidity in their movement highlights the attitude that adherence to what would be considered normal is not necessary and that freedom in posture can also be seen as a new normal. This concept is also highlighted through the seemingly quirky steps of the performers, from rapid and sudden arm stretching to tapping their feet by simulating a running motion to brief pauses in bizarre poses. The idea that any dance step goes, so long as it integrates into the overall character and emotion of the dance number is exemplified through these quirky steps and poses. The overall happiness of the performers, the energy in their dance steps and the upbeat tempo also serves to highlight the concept that anything can be normal and acceptable so long as you welcome it with an open-mind and pure joy. The constant wave-like motions at various parts of the dance number that were used as transitions, cemented the idea of to just not worry too much about logic and rationale and to trust and accept certain things around you F Detailed Analysis and Evidence of Dance Influences Tap dancing – The crux of the performance’s success was the tap dance. It started around 0:56 and then continued for most of the rest of performance. The most common element of using the hard sole of a shoe to tap the floor
