I saw "Whisper House" at The Old Globe quite a while back. It needed a lot of work. Perhaps it got the work it needed. Perhaps not.
I saw "Half a Sixpence" in London last November. The show was the last "traditional" British musical to transfer to Broadway. It is a charming throw-back, and the leading man mugs up a storm (as is needed - the leading man IS the show).
I saw the original London production of "Travesties" many years ago, with John Wood. It was a revelation, and I imagine that a good production of it will be so once again. I'd go with the others, who are recommending it over "Half a Sixpence."

PS - I want to know what you think of Imelda Staunton's Martha in "Virginia Woolf." I saw her Rose in "Gypsy" live and thought she was phenomenal. Many who saw the recorded version thought she was awful. There's going to be a recorded version of "Virginia Woolf," and I am nervous about seeing it.
