“You’re the top!/You’re the Coliseum…” And that’s just one of the swell standards Cole Porter penned for “Anything Goes,” his hit 1934 Broadway musical. A breezy tonic during the Great Depression, graced with one of Porter’s best scores, the show sports a frothy farce plot, an imposing setting (a Deco ocean liner heading from New York to London) and a lot of excuses to dance. Director-choreographer Kathleen Marshall’s recent Broadway staging of the blithe romp, for Roundabout Theatre, won a Tony Award for best musical revival. The national tour, steaming into the 5th Avenue Theatre, features leading lady Rachel York (shown here, with Erich Bergen) as Reno Sweeney, the great dame who belts out such Porter tunes as “Blow, Gabriel, Blow.” Tuesday-Nov. 3, 5th Avenue Theatre, Seattle; (206-625-1900 or www.5thavenue.org)
