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 saw that other Goldstar members gave this a low rating, but I don't know why. I go to several events in the city and found this to be quite entertaining, although I do prefer musicals. The actors were talented, it was a clever script, the Chicago references were funny ... it wasn't split your sides funny, but certainly several laugh out loud spots!! I especially loved the teenager and Marlene. It was a nice evening out ... Thanks.
Three sisters return to the family vacation home on the shore of Lake Michigan, where they spent the summers of their childhood. Now the sisters are grown, the parents are gone and the house is just sitting there. What should they do with the property? One sister wants to keep it, one sister wants to sell it and one sister just wants everyone to get along. With their respective spouses and one teenager in tow, will they even make it to the end of the week? Not likely!
