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 enjoyed this play and both actors were very, very good. It was sort of like "Three's Company" meets "The Golden Girls" but with only two characters. The theater is nice and quite small, and the feeling is intimate. Despite being a jaded, "aging hipster," I found myself moved by the show's emotional life issues. That is, I'm usually into edgy storefront theater, but I enjoyed the maturity of this show. The dialogue was witty and the dance lessons were great fun to watch. The male lead, Will Nifong, was marvelous as the instuctor and he has clearly been a professional dancer at some point. You should go see this show if you like intimate, high-quality theater on a tiny scale.

We loved this play. Every seat is fairly close to the stage. This theater is
a gem in Oak Park. The two actors were superb and their characters unfolded with humor and depth. Many laughs and some tears make this uplifting play a must see!!
