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

the actor who played hedwig was great! he is an emotional powerhouse. good singer too. set design was perfect. i love the way they designed the theater like a real underground club. a little minor glitch with the sound system but i'm sure they'll fix it. overall excellent production.

Winner of the 2001 Obie Award and Outer Circle Critics Award for best Off-Broadway Musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of a young East German who discovers that the only way to escape communism and come to the United States is to give up a little part of himself. Yes, through a bit of surgery, Hansel becomes Hedwig, marries, and embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. In its first rock musical ever, American Theater Company transforms its theatrical warehouse into an underground nightclub for a concert event not to be missed.
Anticipating a New York revival, the authors gave ATC special permission to produce this re-imagined version set in an underground rock venue in Chicago. To enhance the nightclub ambiance, ATC has re-orientated the theatre space and replaced many seats with an eclectic mix of loveseats, couches and chairs. In addition, ATC will open the door between the theater and its neighbor, Martyrs Restaurant and Pub, allowing audience members access to beverages during the show.
“We want to thank John and Stephen for allowing us to produce this version of Hedwig,” says ATC Artistic Director PJ Paparelli. “This is a _Hedwig _like none before. Think Blondie meets Bowie. Chicago needs to have an exuberant theatre experience and that’s what Hedwig is. Great music. Great theatricality. Great emotions. Besides the mind-blowing score, this show is all about the new America: searching for its true identity and embracing its diversity."
