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

This live stage show revolves around the Sesame Street character Grover losing his 'super powers' and trying to figure how to get them back. All of the familiar Sesame Street characters including Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, The Count, etc. come onstage and the kids go wild, especially when Elmo makes his appearance. There's constant singing and dancing, but the musical numbers can be very loud, and some kids might be uncomfortable with the sound volume, as my son covered his ears numerous times, but it depends on where you sit. Elmo, Telly, Abby, and Zoey (including her pet rock 'Rocco') are told by a talking piece of Cheese that they must take Grover's place and become super hero's. Each one takes on a task and saves the day in their own way. At the end of the day I believe the producers of the show want kids to walk away understanding that just like Elmo, they can be 'super' if they practice healthy eating habits, have good hygiene, get proper rest and exercise. It's a very entertaining show with positive messages for children. As expected kids of all ages are everywhere and will run wild if not attended. It's best to arrive early so that children can pose for photos with the various cardboard characters, etc. All considered I would recommend.
