You’re likely well acquainted with the quote about not being able to please everyone all the time. It rings particularly true when it comes to the staging of well-known and loved plays. Re-inventions are almost always disappointments, which means the only real option is to present the piece exactly as it always has been… but somehow make it better (or at least just as good as the original). It’s a tricky situation—and exactly what The Lower Ossington Theatre is up against with its production of The Sound of Music.
