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 writing is hilariously sick and wicked. It is not humor for the conservative type. I loved it and would go see it again just to experience the language. The characters are meant to display a lack of awareness about themselves and others, that's what makes it funny. Think HBO sinister and you won't be misled, nor disappointed.

In Rantoul and Die, Rallis and Debbie’s marriage has reached its expiration date. In fact, it’s soured and stuck to the bottom of the carton. She wants him to pack his stuff and hit the bricks, but he’s clinging to the past like a cat on a screen door. How far will a man go to hang on to his lady fair?
From the writer and executive producer of such hit TV shows as_ Big Bang Theory_ and Mike and Molly comes a new play with four of the funniest, skankiest, and most heartbreakingly real characters ever, all crammed together in a grimy little world that makes the local Dairy Queen and Dante’s Inferno seem one and the same.
Starring American Blues Theater Ensemble members Kate Buddeke and Cheryl Graeff and Steppenwolf Theatre Ensemble members Francis Guinan and Alan Wilder. Contains strong language and some violence.
