Sail Away, with a script and songs by Noël Coward, who also directed it, is notable as his first musical for Broadway in more than 20 years, since Set to Music in 1939. Coward has chosen a shipboard setting, although times have changed since Cole Porter tried the same thing with Anything Goes back in 1934; these days, people usually travel by airplane, though they still take pleasure cruises, and that's what's depicted in Sail Away, with Elaine Stritch portraying a cruise director romanced by a younger passenger. Well into her 30s, Stritch is no ingénue, and she is no one's idea of demure. But that may make her an ideal Coward heroine.
