About the Event
Anyone Can Whistle, an absurdist social satire about insanity and conformity (among a dozen other things) is probably the bravest show that Stephen Sondheim wrote.
Anyone Can Whistle tells the story of a corrupt mayoress who fakes a miracle to revitalize her bankrupt town (through the resulting pilgrim trade) and the ill-fated romance between the rational nurse, out to expose the fraud, and the easygoing doctor who is determined to enjoy the chaos that it brings. In the end, the show delivers a poignant message about the importance of the individual in a conformist society – but not before aiming its still-relevant barbs at government, religion, science and anything else that stands in its way!
With its circus-like atmosphere, the dazzling, melodic Broadway-style score overflows with the youthful energy of experimentation, consisting of one showstopper after another.
Tickets are $25 per person.
Performances are on October 7, 8, 14, and 15, 2022 at 7 :30 PM and Sunday, October 16, 2022 at 3:00 PM.
