Anyone Can
Whistle

March 10 at 7:00PM | Carnegie Hall

MasterVoices | Ted Sperling, Conductor
Tickets on sale on December 13

Better than buried treasure! Come rediscover a madcap, provocative, and weirdly romantic gem from the legendary Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents. Starring Vanessa Williams in the role of a corrupt mayoress (originally played by Angela Lansbury), who fakes a miracle to revitalize her bankrupt town, the zany plot includes an ill-fated romance between a rational nurse, out to expose the fraud, and a chaos-loving doctor, who makes us question the very notion of sanity.

Rarely performed, this timely “satire on conformity” is also an exuberant musical comedy, filled with one showstopper after another and highlighting what Ben Brantley called Sondheim’s “gift for defining, in song, characters who are a hair’s breadth from nervous breakdowns.” Hit songs from the show include “Me and My Town,” “There Won’t Be Trumpets,” “Anyone Can Whistle,” “Everybody Says Don’t” and “With So Little to be Sure Of”… which is one of Sondheim’s own favorites.

Tickets on sale on December 13, 2021 and may be purchased online at carnegiehall.org, by calling CarnegieCharge at 212.247.7800 or in person at Carnegie Hall’s box office at 57th and Seventh Avenue.
