The Sound of Music: Diamond Jubilee

The Sound of Music: Diamond Jubilee

In 1959, Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre premiered a musical on an unlikely topic: an Austrian family who had become famous for escaping Nazi Germany. The Sound of Music went on to win five Tony Awards, along with five Academy Awards in its film adaptation. Pianist and scholar Robert Wyatt discusses the history of the musical as well as the audience’s reaction, then and now. Part of the First Wednesdays series, a Vermont Humanities Council program hosted by Ilsley Public Library.

L.A. Theatre Works: SEVEN

L.A. Theatre Works: SEVEN

Called a “national theatrical treasure” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, L.A. Theatre Works presents the riveting documentary play SEVEN. Written by seven female writers, it’s based on personal interviews with seven remarkable women who faced life-threatening obstacles—resistance, death threats, entrenched norms, and pervasive violence—yet later brought heroic changes to their home countries of Pakistan, Nigeria, Ireland, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Russia, and Cambodia. SEVEN makes the powerful and timeless statement that even in the darkest times, one person, one voice, and a single act of courage can change the lives of thousands.
