Anyone Can Whistle - Sondheim @ 90 Roundtable
"Anyone Can Whistle," music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Arthur Laurents, tells the story of a small town mayor, who, in an attempt to draw tourists, creates a “fake” miracle. Weber’s guests include Victoria Bussert (director, Music Theatre Program; professor of theatre, Baldwin Wallace University), Cheryl Coons (director, Music Theater Program, Chicago Dramatists) and Porchlight’s Casting & Company Manager Christopher Pazdernik (Director of the inaugural production of the Porchlight Revisits series, "Anyone Can Whistle") discussing this Sondheim show that has rarely been produced since its opening but its score has endured, becoming a much performed part of Sondheim's canon including the title song, "Everybody Says Don't" and "There Won't Be Trumpets."
