review of 'The Sound of Music' from 2011-2012 season

The latest production of The Sound of Music (that will likely play to capacity audiences at the historic Franklin Theatre through June 17), however, comes from the fertile imagination of Studio Tenn artistic director Matt Logan and just may signal a creative renaissance for the show that most of us know best from the 1965 Academy Award-winning film that pops up regularly on our television sets. Logan's unique take on the time-honored musical renders it, somehow, completely fresh, giving the tale of Maria Rainer and the seven children of the imperious Captain Georg von Trapp some contemporary twists that work marvelously, intriguing audiences with creativity and theatricality.
