Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Orchestration by Don Walker
Written by Stephen Sondheim, Anyone Can Whistle is an absurdist social satire about insanity and conformity (among a dozen other things!). This legendary cult show is a wacky, intelligent, highly unconventional musical which tells the story of a corrupt mayoress who fakes a miracle to revitalize her bankrupt town and the ill-fated romance between the rational nurse and the easy-going doctor who is determined to enjoy the chaos that it brings. Anyone Can Whistle 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!
