Foxborough’s Orpheum Theatre puts on ‘Anything Goes’
Lyricist Cole Porter was ahead of his time. Porter’s title song for the musical “Anything Goes,” written in 1934, compares the freedom and loose language of his “modern” day with the beliefs of the nation’s Puritan founders — but what would he say of today? Maybe, like director Dori Bryan-Ployer, that there’s still a lot of high-spirited entertainment to be had from the suave, satirical songs of “Anything Goes,” to be performed this weekend by the Orpheum Theatre in Foxborough.
