Few Broadway musicals are more beloved than The Sound of Music, and now you can see it live in a production by Lyric Opera of Chicago, with Hollywood star Billy Zane stepping into the role of Captain von Trapp. It's the story of Maria, an aspiring nun who takes a job as governess to the widowed Captain von Trapp's seven children. As she gradually earns the heart of the family -- and their father -- the von Trapps are threatened by the rise of the Nazis, and must figure out how to escape Austria. "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," "Do-Re-Mi," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "The Lonely Goatherd" and the soaring title song are just a few of the unforgettable melodies in this classic work of musical theater. The cast includes opera stars Christine Brewer and Elizabeth Futral, Jenn Gambatese of Broadway's Wicked and All Shook Up, and Edward Hibbert of Frasier. Learn More

Aiming for Sainthood
Written and Performed by Arlene Malinowski
Directed by Will Rogers
When her Deaf mother gets cancer, a middle-aged daughter moves back into her childhood room with two questions:
Where is God?
Who took my Springsteen poster?
Following the success of her solo show What Does The Sun Sound Like?, Fresh Squeezed premieres the second installment in Arlene’s autobiographical trilogy. Arlene’s acclaimed solo shows have played to sold out houses and standing ovations throughout the country.
These stories are about the hilarious, heartbreaking, heartwarming, totally true tales of a hearing prodigal daughter growing up in a Deaf family and culture. It is the tale of a girl/woman surviving and interpreting sound for her parents while interpreting the world for herself. They are the tales of being a cultural tourist, bridging a world of two languages and two cultures and the universal search for identity.
Funny, touching and poignant, these theater pieces are told through both sign language & voice, using both Deaf and hearing storytelling/theatrical techniques which challenge audiences to share a world beyond their experiences. _
Aiming for Sainthood_ is a project of Victory Gardens Theater Fresh Squeezed and The Access Project Crip Slam Series. Aiming for Sainthood was originally commissioned and workshopped by 16th Street Theater in Berwyn with further workshop development by Chicago Dramatists, Millennium Park and the Chicago Department of Chicago of Cultural Affairs. *
