Me And My Town – Anyone Can Whistle (with Madeline Botteri and Joel DeCandio of The Sondheim Project)

The failure of Anyone Can Whistle is legendary. It closed after 9 performances. Madeline Botteri and Joel DeCandio, of The Sondheim Project, join Kyle in discussing how the first song of the show helps (and doesn't help) set the stage for what's to come.

The failure of Anyone Can Whistle is legendary. It closed after 9 performances. Madeline Botteri and Joel DeCandio, of The Sondheim Project, join Kyle in discussing how the first song of the show helps (and doesn't help) set the stage for what's to come. How is a show affected when the antagonist is the one who opens the show? Plus you'll hear from Angela Lansbury and her less than happy time being in the show.

The Sondheim Project is great!
