The Sound of Music Reviews
from Schenectady, New York
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.

What a remarkable magical well executed show. From the first note to the last it was a wonderful show.

What a joy this play was last night. Such a talented cast. The children were so good. It’s a feel good event and beloved by the audience. The show stopper was “Climb every mountain” by Ms Kidwell..superb. We ate dinner at Buds & Marilyn’s first and often go to Amis which I prefer. Who needs NY? Not us! Philly is so easy and such fun. Only issue is very close quarters at the Merriam.

I took my mother who is a huge Sound of Music fan and it was fantastic!!! The cast was amazing and we got chills from the Mother Abbess singing Climb EVery Mountain. Superb!!! Hope it comes back soon, will definitely go again!! 👏🏻👏🏻

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!

Saw this show twice and I could have watched it again! Amazing re-creation of the movie, not exactly the same, but the changes were interesting and fresh! The cast was incredible; their voices, enthusiasm and genuine portrayal of the characters was transformative! Recommend as a must see even if you aren’t familiar with the movie! No seat was a bad seat. The second show we went to was with my mom and we needed wheelchair access. The staff were so helpful and seats were great!!
