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 great start to our Labor Day weekend! This is a rousing evening that begins the moment you find your seat and are pulled into the imminent labor meeting and a group of people "waiting for lefty." We enjoyed the vignettes and ensemble pieces very much and definitely felt transported into 1935 America. America Blues has presented a play that entertains and informs. Highly recommended.
Waiting for Lefty
by Clifford Odets
Directed by Kimberly Senior
Inspired by the New York taxi strike of 1934 and first staged by the Group Theater in 1935, these powerful vignettes offer a treatise on societal inequities. “We’ve been kicked around so long we’re black and blue from head to toes.” The Los Angeles Times calls Waiting for Lefty “undeniably relevant” and the New York Times hails it as “fiercely dramatic.”
