CHICAGO – The venerable musical “The King and I,” by the legendary team of (Richard) Rodgers and (Oscar) Hammerstein, is now 65 years old. The Lyric Opera of Chicago is injecting fresh life into this senior aged play, with a sumptuous new production that is top drawer at every level.
CHICAGO – Sacha Gervasi, the director of the great “Anvil! The Story of Anvil” likes to use the word awesome. When we talked about his brilliant love letter to his favorite band, Gervasi couldn’t hide the super-fan inside that is just loving the rock show that has built up around Steve “Lips” Ludlow and Robb Reiner.
