May 1998

The SS American is sailing all this week from the good old US of A to the UK in the classic Cole Porter musical Anything Goes, presented by the Barnes & Richmond Operatic Society.

With director Andrew MacBean at its helm, the ship may be slow leaving New York, indeed, the long haul of the first act suggests a world cruise rather than an Atlantic crossing, but when she gets up steam she races towards the coast of England as eagerly as the ill-fated Titanic towards the iceberg.

However, while she is also short of lifeboats and carries only a couple of lifebelts, there is no need to entertain even a hint of a sinking feeling.

As one of its passengers so rightly says, “Go Hail a few Marys” – the SS American really is unsinkable and, with siren blowing and all hands singing and dancing, steams to a recordbreaking success.
