Cast announced for Stephen Sondheim’s 1964 musical ANYONE CAN WHISTLE’ at Southwark Playhouse

Full casting has been announced for the new London production of Arthur Laurents’ and Stephen Sondheim’s rarely produced 1964 musical ‘Anyone Can Whistle’.

A political satire about conformity and the ostracisation of those considered ‘other’ in society, ‘Anyone Can Whistle’, directed by Matthew Rankcom, will play Southwark Playhouse, 1 April – 7 May, 2022.

Starring Alex Young as the rich and greedy Mayoress Cora Hoover Hooper who is hated by her people, Chrystine Symone as Nurse Fay Apple and Jordan Broatch as J Bowden Hapgood.

Set in a fictional town where the government controls everything, even the miracles, this fast paced and off-the-wall musical is as hilarious as it is subversive.
