Creating a New Tradition
of Excellence in
THE SOUND OF MUSIC IS
ONE, BIG, FAT TRIUMPH!
From the Talkin' Broadway review by Rob Spiegel:
"The production by Landmark Musicals is solid throughout. Good choice by producer, Myra Cochnar. Excellent direction by Daniel Yurgaitis. Terrific music direction by Wojciech and wonderful choreography by Louis Giannini, who brings magic to everything he touches on stage. The rest of the production crew has done a great job as well. I was able to lose myself in the story and song, an uncommon experience for this reviewer.
"There are a lot of roles in The Sound of Music that have to be just right in both singing and acting for the production to work. This cast hits all the right notes. Zoey Reese well manages Maria's perky blend of rebellion and deference. Cody K. Wesner-Ellis as Mother Abbess delivers a strong performance of "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," the power ballad of the musical.
"All the kids are delightful, but Dakota Bohman as the youngest Von Trapp kid, Gretl, is painfully charming in the best way possible. She steals every scene she is in. You just can't take your eyes off her. At age 8, this is her fifth production, her second with Landmark (She was Molly in Annie in 2012), so she knows what she's doing. My goodness. Thanks to Myra and all for a very good time at the theater."

About The Sound of Music
The final collaboration between Rodgers and Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time. The play opened on November 16, 1959, and ran for 1,443 performances, earning seven Tony awards including Best Musical. It's still the record holder as the longest-running American musical in London.
