The national tour of The Sound Of Music premiers at The Playhouse on Rodney Square in Wilmington, Delaware opens on May 9th. The show is set to last until May 12th and tickets are on sale now at www.BroadwayInWilmington.org, or by calling 302.888.0200.

 

While The Sound Of Music is known for its movie adaptation and recent NBC Live! production, the show started as a hit Broadway production in 1959.  2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.

 

In the words of Ted Chapin, President of Rodgers & Hammerstein,  “I waited for a moment when we could rediscover The Sound Of Music as it was originally created. 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.”
