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

Like Pinter’s “Betrayal,” or Sondheim’s “Merrily We Roll Along,” the narrative of Philip Dawkins’ “the Homosexuals” was also implemented the ‘reverse chronology’ technique (simply brilliant!) with first scene taking place in 2010 (present) and final scene in 2000 (past); 10 years of make-up and break-up among a group of gay friends. As an FOB cutie Evan, Patrick Andrews managed this demanding core character very well (he was on stage throughout; with a slight break at last scene). As an inner city school teacher (and most gay men’s token beard), Elizabeth Ledo stole the show. She was genuinely funny. Every gesture or comment she made ignited laughter. The most sympathetic would be ‘Michael’ and Stephen Cone delivered a heartbreaking performance. It’s been eleven years since I saw Benjamin Sprunger (in Pasadena Playhouse’s “Do I Hear A Waltz”); he still looks handsome and charming. His portrayal of hunky British Mark was truly titillating.
Such a remarkable play being presented in the Pride month -- I give it high praise among the others; “Unnatural Acts” (in New York), “Tales of the City” (in San Francisco), and Bash’d: A Gay Rap Opera (in Los Angeles).
ps, I totally agree that Susan Stroman’s “Contact” is NOT a musical!
