NEW YORK (AP) — The Cole Porter romp "Anything Goes" has won the Tony Award for best musical revival.

The musical, centered on a ship crossing the Atlantic populated by a crazy mix of characters, stars Sutton Foster and Joel Grey, and highlights Porter's best songs, including "You're the Top," ''Friendship" and "I Get a Kick Out of You."

It is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall.

It was the third revival of the bubbly musical and its only competition for the Tony this year was "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," starring John Larroquette and Daniel Radcliffe.
