CHICAGO – Standing up at the Lyric Opera house in Chicago is unusual before a show.

The orchestra struck up La Marseillaise, a reminder that we’ll always have Paris.

Here is the plot description for “The Big Year”:
Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson are at a crossroads. One is experiencing a mid-life crisis, another a late-life crisis and the third a far-from-ordinary no-life crisis.
From David Frankel (the director of “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Marley & Me”) comes a sophisticated comedy about three friendly rivals who – tired of being ruled by obligations and responsibilities – dedicate a year to following their dreams. Their big year takes them on a cross-country journey of wild and life-changing adventures.
