Jermyn Street celebrates the 80th birthday of Stephen Sondheim with this revival of Anyone Can Whistle.

In a bankrupt town in a recession-hit country, the citizens are rebelling against the corrupt Mayoress Cora Hooper. She comes up with a devious plan to reverse her fortunes and keep the town under control. But she reckons without the feisty young Fay Apply and the mysterious stranger Hapgood, who has his own plans for the town and the people who live there.

The score features some of Sondheim’s most beautiful music including There Won’t Be Trumpets, Everybody Says Don’t and the title song.
