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 felt the play was deeply moving - the stage was bare as I felt the play deemed necessary. It was very moving and the actors were excellent. I thought the second half dragged a bit - overall I think The Lost Boys of Sudan is worth seeing. The Zig Zag restaurant right across the street was fabulous, food was delicious and served nicely. BYOB - used valet parking as the weather was bad - A good time was had by all.
Three boys meet in the worst way: fleeing the horrors of war. As they team up on a perilous journey to a refugee camp, they exchange heroic survival stories, songs and even laughter. Thus begins an extraordinary journey that eventually takes the boys of the Dinka tribe to, of all places—Fargo, North Dakota—where drought, crocodiles and guerrillas are replaced with malls, video games, and Skittles. This play is written by Lonnie Carter, the author of recent VGT hits The Romance of Magno Rubio and Wheatley.
