Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music has won over fickle audiences for more than 50 years, cementing its status as a classic with each new revival. But what's the secret of its success? Is it the actual music, which is recognized even by people who have never seen the whole thing? Is it the winsome love story of a young nun educating children and winning over a staid military man that packs them in? Is it the memory of Julie Andrews spinning in that Alpine meadow as she sings the praises of love and music to a field of wild flowers that does it? As unlikely as it seems, the obvious answer is that all three reasons combine to create a show that satisfies audiences on multiple levels (and don't discount the whole "foiling and humiliating the Nazis" element; everyone loves when a Nazi is publicly shamed). The Sound of Music returns to dazzle again at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 and 6 p.m. Sunday (February 2 through 4) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; Tickets are $25 to $125.
