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

I've never been to the Viaduct Theater before, so was a little uncertain upon arriving given its non-descript entrance, but was pleasantly surprised at the large space inside. The show was great, with first-rate singers and actors. Some excellent, funny moments. Well staged, well lit, well costumed. It was definitely one of the more memorable Sondheim shows I've seen. Well done.
Weaving together dream-like narratives of the assassinations and attempted assassinations of the U.S. presidents, Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy brings to light the pain of alienation, regret, and isolation that underlies each character’s failure to achieve the American Dream. The New York Times hails Assassins as “an extraordinarily original piece of theater,” and the __L____.____A____.__ Times says “Sondheim’s killer musical comedy hits the mark…sidesplitting and sobering in equal measure, this is the most provocative musical in years.”
