Last night Sebastian and I went to see The Sound of Music at the Rose Theatre. Somehow I made it to 48 without seeing a staged production of the musical, and I'm not quite sure how.
Anyway, it was a good and enjoyable production, and also Sebastian's first full-length stage musical. He seemed to enjoy it and really be into the songs.
My one new takeaway from this production was the now smack my forehead obvious conclusion that Max Detweiler is gay. Which adds layers of complexity to his character and the decisions he makes, particularly why he chooses to get along to survive rather than take the bolder actions of Captain Von Trapp.
What do you think?
