The S.S. American is getting ready for its maiden 2012 voyage, and the cast and crew are shaping up nicely!

To headline the juicy, belty role of "Reno Sweeney" in the national tour of Kathleen Marshall's thrilling revival of Anything Goes is Broadway fave and power-chanteuse Rachel York. York has headlined some of the biggest musicals in the past couple of decades: City of Angels, Les Misérables, Victor/Victoria (Drama Desk Award), The Scarlet Pimpernel, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

The tour will set sail from Cleveland's PlayhouseSquare in October 2012, cruising to exciting destinations around the U.S. during the 2012/2013 season including Los Angeles, Tampa, Durham, Pittsburgh, St. Paul, Washington D.C., Costa Mesa, and San Francisco.

The 2011 Broadway revival of Cole Porter's famous Anything Goes, was a hit with audiences and Tony Award voters, winning Best Actress in a Musical for Sutton Foster (Shrek, The Drowsy Chaperone, Thoroughly Modern Millie), Best Choreographer for Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work if You Can Get It, The Pajama Game), and overall Best Revival.

The Broadway cast album is available for getting into the groove of Porter's most famous show. And for more information on the Broadway show or the national tour, visit the show's website.
