The Sound of Music features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp. The beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy® and Academy Award®–winning Best Score, including “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss” and the title song.

The Sound of Music enjoyed extraordinary success as a live television production when “The Sound of Music Live!” aired on NBC in 2013 and was seen by more than 44 million people. The film, one of the most successful movie musicals in history, marked its 50th anniversary in 2015.

“I waited for a moment when we could rediscover The Sound of Music as it was originally created,” said Ted Chapin, president of Rodgers & Hammerstein. “Because of the enormous success of the film, few were aware that it started life as a hit Broadway show—and a very big hit at that! 

“The artists behind this production embraced what the authors wrote, looked at it all through modern eyes and, in so doing, found depth and resonance that has been recognized by critics and audiences across the country. It’s like visiting an old friend but finding yourself surprised as well. It's also a reminder of why this show is such an evergreen."

“Sparkling, fresh and lively.” 
– Los Angeles Times

“Even if you’d seen The Sound of Music before, it’s worth going again to see it this way.” 
– Dallas Morning News
