Friday, May 23: "The Sound of Music"

Final call! The Lyric's acclaimed production of this beloved show only has four more performances. The best part about seeing "The Sound of Music" live on this grand stage: It'll wash out the bad taste from last Thanksgiving's ham-handed TV attempt by Carrie Underwood and crew. Also worth noting: With a total running time of 2 hours, 42 minutes (which includes a nearly half-hour-long intermission), the stage show is considerably shorter than the beloved but overlong 1965 film.When: 7 p.m. (Closes May 25)Where: The Lyric Opera, 20 N. Wacker Drive (312-827-5600, $29-$199
