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

This was a great show. XIII Pocket Theater Co. does a great job of romanticizing this true story. The video clips are a great addition - making the story come alive. Both actors were great. Paige Smith was exceptional as Bernd - finding witty ways to make the audience laugh throughout the show.
XIII Pocket presents Adore, written and directed by Stephen Louis Grush – playing as part of Steppenwolf’s Garage Rep.
Armin is a cannibal. It’s a secret he’s kept ever since he was a child, the desire to find another person that would never leave him. He never thought it would be possible, until Bernd stepped into his life. A willing victim was the only missing piece and now he has it.
Based off the actual shocking events that made headlines, this groundbreaking film/theatrical crossover challenges our simpler concepts and shows us love as an all consuming act. Literally. By using both the inventions of the stage and the intimacies of the lens, Adore follows the desires, fears and obsessions of two men willing to give themselves completely to their hidden passions however unthinkable they may seem to the rest of the world.
