If you’re from the Milwaukee metro area and would like a memorable evening of beautiful music that would be perfect for the family, the Skylight Music Theatre has a critically acclaimed Sound of Music on their stage for the next few weeks. So popular has the musical been that they have added several performances through the end of December. There is ticket information here, but the tickets are moving quickly.
The reviews have been singularly glowing for the Skylight’s version of Sound of Music. Our daughter, Mary, 16, is our resident Sound of Music expert. She attended the preview before opening night with her dad who is part of the 7-piece orchestra, and she came home just delighted with all of it. A couple of the reviews are found here and here.
It’s nice to promote something really beautiful that is suitable for the whole family. One male reviewer said he was moved to tears more than once. It’s a timeless story of courage and joy that never seems to grow old.
