News About Anyone Can Whistle at Third Avenue Playhouse
DRIVING MISS DAISY, ANYONE CAN WHISTLE and More Announced in Third Avenue Playhouse 2020 Season
March 06, 2020
The Third Avenue Playhouse, located in historic downtown Sturgeon Bay, announces its lineup of six plays for the upcoming 2020 season. The plays include an early career work from playwright David Mamet, a 1964 musical by the legendary composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, a multi-award winning classic about the unlikely friendship between an elderly lady and her driver, the story of an unconventional advice columnist, and a farcical take on the making of Gone With The Wind.
A colorful, controversial, and corrupt politician will do anything to get re-elected in this wacky, smart, zany musical satire. Anyone Can Whistle is a carnival-like celebration of nonconformity offering a poignant message about individuality and freedom but not before aiming hilariously stinging barbs at politics, piety, and anything else that stands in its way! It has taken half a century and the and the ever growing popularity of programs hosted by Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert for absurdist social commentary to catch up with this 1964 trailblazer. Sondheims dazzling, melodic Broadway-style score overflows with youthful energy and show stopping songs. TAP offers a rare opportunity to see this legendary musical mirthquake sing and dance its way into your funny bone and your heart.
