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 gladly gave it three stars. We really liked the production. We had great weather and enjoyed a picnic on the grounds beforehand. A loaf of bread, a jug of sparkling grape juice, and "thou". The set was enhanced by the trees and fireflies. The costumes, music, lighting, and script were excellent. My professional sound man husband noticed that the microphones could have been improved by moving them just slightly, but it was not noticeable. There was a wardrobe malfunction that could have been avoided, but it didn't seem to disturb the children attending. All in all, it was a great experience. My husband is still talking about it.
Robin Hood: A Fanciful Historie of That Most Notable & Famous Outlaw Robyn Hood is a good old-fashioned romp through the life and times of Robin Hood, written in the Elizabethan style of the Bard. Young and old alike will thrill to this play full of action, romance, heroes, villains, and fun that answers the question: What if Shakespeare had written a play about the legendary bandit Robin Hood?
