Department of Music faculty members Thomas Reed and Scott Garlock performed in the orchestra at PlayhouseSquare in Cleveland this past October for the launch of the Anything Goes National Tour.  With Jay Alger as conductor and starring Rachel York as Reno Sweeney, the Cleveland performances included Reed on flute, clarinet, soprano and alto saxophones while Garlock played trombone.

Reed and Garlock are pictured here with lead actress Rachel York  who is best known for her critically acclaimed Broadway performances in City of Angels, Les Misérables, Victor/Victoria (Drama Desk Award), The Scarlet Pimpernel, Sly Fox, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. She also turned heads on television with her courageous portrayal of Lucille Ball in the CBS movie, “Lucy.”

Directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall, this revival of Anything Goes ran for 521 performances on Broadway and nabbed three Tonys, including best-actress, best choreography and the coveted award for best revival of a musical for the Roundabout Theatre Company.

Following its opening in Cleveland, Anything Goes will cruise into more than 25 other cities during the 2012-2013 season.
