What can you say about perfection? The Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of "Anything Goes" is such a giddy, goofy, giggly experience, it's almost impossible to describe. But I'll try. Imagine eating all the chocolates you want without getting full or watching all your favorite Hollywood musicals on TCM without suffering from camp overload. Kathleen Marshall's sleek staging and joyous choreography recall the best of Hermes Pan and Busby Berkeley, with an expert chorus tapping, shimmying, and buck-and-winging it for all they're worth. When your eyes aren't being dazzled by those glorious dancers, your ears are filled with the riches of the classic Cole Porter score. 
The new production of the Cole Porter classic "Anything Goes" sailed onto Broadway last night, and it's as cool and intoxicating as a fresh ocean breeze. Credit two bright talents for such a snazzy, jazzy affair: Sutton Foster, who stars as the saucy singing evangelist Reno Sweeney, and director-choreographer Kathleen Marshall, who's at the helm of this buoyantly dance-happy production.
And when Ms. Marshall turns up the heat for big ensemble interpretations of “Blow, Gabriel, Blow” and “Anything Goes,” watch out. Tapping, shimmying, twirling and writhing, the dancers combine military discipline with white-hot sensuality, and the dopey promise of all those insinuating one-liners is more than fulfilled. It’s Ms. Foster who leads these numbers, both as a singer and as a dancer. And her triple mastery of words, music and moves is unmatched by any performer on Broadway at the moment. It’s not just that she nails every step, note and joke. It’s the attitude with which she does so — an aw-shucks kind of casualness coupled with a dizzy exhibitionist’s delight. Her pleasure in her material creates a sheen that illuminates everyone around her.
