BWW Review: You Know How to WHISTLE ‚Ä" Put Sondheim's Score in the Right Hands, As M Photo BWW Review: You Know How to WHISTLE ‚Ä" Put Sondheim's Score in the Right Hands, As MasterVoices Concert at Carnegie Hall Showed
by Richard Sasanow - Mar 13, 2022

The original title of the Sondheim-Laurents ANYONE CAN WHISTLE was THE NATIVES ARE RESTLESS, though the crowd at Carnegie Hall on Thursday for the MasterVoices concert performance of the trouble musical were hardly fidgety. They were willing and able to sit through the cockamamie book and story Arthur Laurents concocted to hear the wonderful score by the late and very lamented Stephen Sondheim. And, believe me, Ted Sperling, leading the orchestra and big chorus, with a couple of strong guest performers, showed how good much of this score can be.

If Anyone Can Whistle must be a concert, please, let it be a concert like this. MasterVoices, an organization dedicated to elevating choral works, brought the show to Carnegie Hall for a one-night engagement. They masterfully adapted the show as a scaled-down concert version, dropping any bells and whistles.
