Excellent, except for the nosebleed seats. We were "indoors" but as far back as you can sit without being on a ledge. There were many. many more desirable seats vacant in the rows in front of us. Our ability to "see" the play was not any better than those seated outside, on the lawn. The cast, however, were great and we could "hear" everything.
_The Sound of Music _
Music by Richard Rogers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Celebrate the golden anniversary of this iconic musical with timeless standards including “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
- Winner of numerous Tony Awards in 1959, including Best Musical and Best Actress for the original lead, Mary Martin, The Sound Of Music returned to Broadway in 1998 for a 15-month run.
- Set in Salzburg, Austria in the months leading up to World War II, the musical follows the story of the rebellious novice Maria who leaves the abbey to govern the rambunctious Von Trapp children. As she wins the family over with music and kindness, the peaceful world of the Von Trapps’ is interrupted by the encroaching Nazi regime.
