The Tony Award-winning revival of Cole Porter's Anything Goes is coming to Toronto.

David Mirvish says the show — which stars Rachel York as Reno Sweeney — will play in the city from July 16 to Aug. 18 next summer.

The show replaces Honeymoon in Vegas in the Mirvish 2012-13 subscription season. That show had been set to have its world premiere in Toronto and its star, Tony Danza, was recently in the city to talk up the production.

However, Mirvish said scheduling conflicts have forced a change.

Anything Goes won three 2011 Tony Awards, including best revival of a musical.

Hit songs in the show include You're the Top, I Get a Kick Out of You and It's De-Lovely.
