Broken Broadway – Anyone Can Whistle

Not every musical is a Hamilton or a RENT, sometimes Musicals Flop! Sometimes they flop hard! Let’s fix some of Broadway’s most broken musicals!

Today we cover Sondheim’s first flop, Anyone Can Whistle! Anyone Can Whistle is a musical with a book by Arthur Laurents and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The story concerns a corrupt mayoress, an idealistic nurse, a man who may be a doctor, and various officials, patients and townspeople, all fighting to save a bankrupt town. It closed after 9 performances and 12 previews. I’m joined by Josh McDougle and we talk about how even Sondheim can fail.
