The Sound of Music Reviews

GLAD I WENT
Great dinner at Byrd & Baldwin before the show. Chrysler venue: unfortunate setup of restrooms (men one side; women other) with the lobby not being big enough. No middle aisle so lots of stepping over people. But good sight lines, acoustics and leg room. Show: fantastic. Maria was a talented singer and Mother Abbess was exceptional. Set, lighting, sound and stage movement great. Orchestra was great and the cast meshed well with the musicians. The cast matched my vision after watching the movie so many times. The kids were great. They could have left out the 2 new songs to shorten it. The love between the 16/17 yea- olds was not developed. The end of the singing contest and the final scene were awkward but I can't put my finger on why. I was emotionally moved during the performance and I enthusiastically stood with others for the final ovation.

More than I could have expected. It's hard to even come close to the original movie cast, but this cast is pretty close. The sets and lighting were visually stunning and captured the emotions of the story. The children were adorable with out being annoying. Enjoyed the added moments of humor in the script. I'll just say the "flags' were unnerving but necessary for the backdrop of Edelwiess. The way the captain performed it last night 4/8/17...perfection. Thank you all for working so hard.

Even though this show is a very familiar one, the cast made it feel new again. All of the voices were extraordinary and the staging was wonderful. I would highly recommend seeing it!

SOUND OF MUSIC IS GREAT
We had a great meal a birraporettis .. then to jones hall for The Sound Of Music Absolutely loved it. The characters were fantastic the music and scenery top notch. So glad we went.. I have to say I was disappointed in how the venue.. handled things.. theatre performances use to be full of class it seems some what disrespectful to go to the theatre in t -shirts,shorts etc. And at intermission people came back with drinks and chip bags crumpling them during the performance very distracting and doors opening and closing the entire performance People just have no class anymore and who brings babies to the theatre to cry.... it is not a movie. To eat popcorn and soda.. wish jones hall would govern that.. hobby center never allows such..

I GUESS I'M A HARD SELL
I grew up on the original Broadway cast album, then saw the movie when it came out in the theater and re-experienced with my daughter, so my expectations are high. All in all, the performances were quite good, but I honestly felt like Maria had been recast as a Disney princess—due primarily to the vocal style (the actress had indeed played a number of them on stage) and ultra-perkiness of the acting (I assume the director had a hand in this). The Abbess was exceptional though, Lisle quite charming, and the sets were both inventive and stunning.
