Review: THE SOUND OF MUSIC at Theatre South Playhouse Photo Review: THE SOUND OF MUSIC at Theatre South Playhouse
by Joseph Harrison - Dec 4, 2022

Behind the spectacle, sets, large casts and costumes of many classic musicals are the relatable, human stories, the conflict, the hope and the pure joy of life. Often, however, as audience members we don‚Äôt see those things as clearly when distracted by falling chandeliers or giant dance numbers. But there is something emotionally raw and fulfilling when given the chance to see a story you know so well stripped down to its essence ‚Äď exposing the beauty that has always been there. This was my experience seeing Rodgers and Hammerstein‚Äôs classic musical THE SOUND OF MUSIC at Theatre South Playhouse ‚Äď a beautiful story performed by a talented cast in a simple but immensely effective staging.

For the second time in Encores! history-and to honor City Center's 75th Anniversary Season-the series is reviving one of its own revivals. A highlight of the second season of Encores! (1995) and featuring a memorable score by Irving Berlin and book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, Call Me Madam centers around a brassy ambassador to the fictional European nation of Lichtenberg. The show pokes fun at a far more polite and benign political world and includes standards such as 'It's a Lovely Day Today' and 'Something to Dance About,' along with Berlin's most famous counterpoint duet, 'You're Just in Love.' Directed by Casey Hushion with music direction by Encores! Music Director Rob Berman and choreography by Denis Jones, Call Me Madam will run for seven performances only February 6 through 10 at New York City Center.
