East Hampton - All aboard for this tuneful, tap-dancing, splashy transatlantic romp awash with romance, intrigue and delightful Cole Porter score. Complications which ensue baffle every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than "Anything Goes!" Audiences are certain to "get a kick..." out of this lighthearted gem of mistaken identities and misbegotten romance all set aboard the luxury ocean liner, S.S. American. It's a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where "Anything Goes!" Great for the entire family!

The Hedges Inn is one of the Hamptons' oldest homesteads, dating back to 1652, and has served as an inn since 1870. Listed in The National Register of Historic Places, the landmark property today retains a distinctive ambiance as a fine country home. A commitment to cordial hospitality was signaled in 2007 by a complete refurbishment. The inn has 12 guest rooms, and sits upon two-acres of beautifully landscaped gardens sheltered by the stately elm trees of James Lane and across from the picturesque Town Pond. The Hedges Inn is located at 74 James Lane, East Hampton, 631-324-7101 or www.thehedgesinn.com.
