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

Quotes & Highlights
“Village Players’ production is smartly directed by Dan Taube and wonderfully acted. The large ensemble walks the tightrope between absurdity and reality with ease. We get glimpses of the pain and poignancy beneath broad, cartoonish sketch episodes.” —Wednesday Journal
“Whether or not Dan Taube is correct when he says, ‘One day people will look at Durang’s body of work and the innovation and the vision and put him in a class with American masters like O’Neill and Williams,’ this production, presented with the loyalty and reverence of a period piece, surely supports that hypothesis.” —Chicagotheaterblog.com
The Marriage of Bette and Boo
by Christopher Durang
Directed by Dan Taube
As in any marriage, Bette and Boo were full of high hopes; but as the years have progressed that hope has faded. As the years go on and the marriage disintegrates, their only son Matt looks back to understand what went wrong between his parents, and what finally went right.
Featuring: Jordan Blythe, Megan Brown, Bev Coscarelli, Matt Dyson, Brian Nash, Dennis Schnell, Stephanie Sullivan, Kelli Walker, Robert Ertel, and Ben Zisk
