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

We had been to this theatre before and were blown away by the production we saw there. Perhaps this set an overly high expectation?
They turned the standard playbill on its head, which also made you believe you were in for a gem.
Or perhaps the script was broken (though the concept and pay-off worked for me), the staging was "high-schooly" and the acting was mediocre?
Anyway, we left not discussing the overall premise, but what could have been done to tighten the overall performance. Never good.
The big disconnect is that the idea is dark, but the acting felt like we were watching a sit-com. Was this intentional? If so, in my opinion, it needs to be rethought.
Conceived and Directed by Margot Bordelon and Cassy Sanders
