THE SOUND OF MUSIC at the Birmingham Hippodrome

June 17, 2016

Best production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC that I have ever seen. The UK tour at the Birmingham Hippodrome looks like the 1950’s original in set and costume design which works wonderfully. You either love or hate The Sound of Music and I am in the first group since my Mom took me to the cinema to see the movie in the early 70’s.

This production has an excellent cast and Lucy O’Byrne as Maria and Andrew Lancel as the Captain works well. The children are all excellent. However, Jan Hartley as the Mother Abbess stole the show for me with her performance of the real anthem from this musical, “Climb Every Mountain”. She brought tears to my eyes. Wonderful.
