Oof. This one was rough. It was certainly splashy though, so it would probably make money if the 11-13 year olds could convince their parents to buy them tickets.

Changes we caught: the house set piece in the beginning wasn't there during the the second preview, the Priest's song was cut, and the scene with the piano teacher and the Priest was added.
Sure, this show is it's flaws but I very much enjoyed it and hope it has some sort of future. "

Actually, the von Trapps were critical of SOM for straying so far from the real life events and character, they might prefer a darker version that more clearly demonstrates the danger the famil

So after more than 15 years of knowing my husband it came up the other day that he has never seen The Sound of Music, so we started watching it. Were only halfway through and Ive seen it dozens of times, but its really interesting to watch it with someone new to it who has hilarious play-by-play commentary and questions. Hes not really into musicals but is actually enjoying it for the most part.
It got me thinking, what would a modern version of this show look like? Darker, and grittier
inception said: "Interesting to read all these comments after just 1 performance. I'm not seeing this for another 5 weeks. I've seen the film twice, a couple years apart, and both times I felt like the whole script felt almost improvised or written spur of the moment with not much thought as to any character's actual motivations. Watching the film I always figured they spent more time writing the songs & story booking the music videos than the rest of the script. Was

It's how you filled in the blanks and that's totally okay. Please don't think I'm trying to be difficult or snarky. I'm not. I liked this enough to care about them getting it right. I won't drag this out beyond this. We're not going to agree, but I like reading your th
Answering wolfwriter's questions against my better judgement, partly because it boggles my mind that the answers aren't obvious to him and partly because I'm wondering if others have different answers.

JBroadway said: "@wolfwriter - are your questions rhetorical, or are you genuinely asking? I feel like most of them are answerable based on what’s already in the text of the show (not just the film). Though some of your questions (ex. “Why should we care?”) are solely subjective, obviously. "
Yes most of those answers are in the show. Why would you ask why the parents are splitting up when it’s discussed several times by many characters? Filling in the blanks seems pretty obvious to me-
JBroadway said: "I completely disagree with those of you who say the show is lacking in depth and character development. It’s true that not all of these characters get huge moments in the spotlight. And if I were just reading the script for this show, I might agree with you.
But I think the combined work of Walsh, Taichman, the songwriters, and the cast, manages to add up to fully realized characters. We may not know every fact about their history and the way they li

It looks like the Q&A showing is sold out and the others are "extended introductions." Does anyone know what that really means?
