Raúl Esparza, Edward Hibbert, Jeff Blumenkrantz, and John Ellison Conlee will join previously announced stars Donna Murphy and Sutton Foster in Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents' Anyone Can Whistle, to be presented by New York City Center Encores!

Blumenkrantz will be Treasurer Cooley, Conlee will play Police Chief Magruder, and Hibbert will play Comptroller Schub.
