Based on the true story of the von Trapp family, The Sound of Music has become a beacon of hope and joy for generations. Audiences will revel in the glorious sounds of iconic melodies like "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," and "Climb Every Mountain." Talkin' Broadway writes, "Paper Mill is in top form doing what it does best and it is now the place to be for those who love American musicals. When it comes to revivals of major Broadway musicals, Paper Mill Playhouse has few equals. So when that major revival is Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music, there is cause for joy."
