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

What a beautiful afternoon with "the arts"! I wasn't too sure about the concept of a hike and a play, and I'm still not convinced of the relationship between the two. No matter, I enjoyed the experience regardless.
"The Three Musketeers" seemed to me (I'm no theatre critic) to be very well done. All of the actors played their roles very well, the play kept my interest, the costumes and props were fine. All in all, I thought it was a wonderful production.
The "stage" itself though, was both the best part, and the most unrelated part to the play. There was not much that could be done to tie the Pullman site into the story, and so there was no real connection for me. On the other hand, the location was a wonderful opportunity to get a glimpse of a beautiful and important historic site, one that otherwise may never be experienced.
I left that afternoon feeling very satisfied - both from enjoying an excellent production, and from taking a step back into Chicago's interesting history. I am excited about trying this same idea again - I believe there is an upcoming production at the Morton Arboretum. I might recommend toting a lawn chair if you don't want to be on your feet for 3 hours straight though. Enjoy! I certainly did!!
A blanket, camping chair and water bottle are suggested.
