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 loved that it was a two person play. It was intimate and riveting. Also, as an African American woman, it was difficult to watch at times, but I can appreciate the honesty and am always happy to see this subject matter tackled with class.
A soul-searching journey begins when an African-American professor is left by his wife due to his reluctance to embrace his identity. The night of their break he’s visited by the spirits of several male ancestors whose stories illuminate and guide his way._ Blue Door _is a beautiful exploration of family and identity that will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to live with—or escape—the past.
