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

The play was good, but the set up was very different. It was a little distracting to have them changing clothes on stage in between scenes. we're used to the scenery change but the clothing was a little wierd. Also they said a 90 minute presentation with no intermission. It started at 8:30 and we were in the car and on our way home at 9:45...no way this was a 90 min. show.

The actors were talented and did an excellent job. The theater space is very small, and the temperature of the room was a little too cold. I also found it somewhat distracting watching the actors move the furniture around to change the scenes.
Nobel Prize, Tony, and Olivier Award winner Harold Pinter is one of the most celebrated and influential playwrights in the English language. His masterpiece, Betrayal, is a dangerous, funny, sexy, and deeply personal journey backward–from the end, to the beginning of a seven year affair between Jerry and Emma, the wife of Jerry’s best friend. The play’s unique structure, with Pinter’s trademark economy of language and silence, sets the stage for a thrilling meditation on marriage, passion, trust, and friendship.
