Upcoming: The Sound of Music at the Fisher Theatre (Detroit), May 10-22
*Disclosure: I have an ongoing relationship with Broadway on Detroit and will be receiving tickets in exchange for posting. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.
The Sound of Music is coming to Detroit! I'm a big fan of the movie, with Julie Andrews, and also the songs in it, so I'm excited to see it live, as I haven't yet seen it on Broadway before.
More information about the show:

And introducing Jack O’Brien’s brand new discovery, KERSTIN ANDERSON as Maria Rainer. A current student at Pace University, Ms. Anderson won the coveted role from hundreds who auditioned. This is her first national tour.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC enjoyed extraordinary success as the first live television production of a musical in over 50 years when “The Sound of Music Live!” aired on NBC in December, 2013; 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history. The spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the Von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with such songs as “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Edelweiss” and the title song.
