The hills are alive — for two nights — with the legendary Julie Andrews. She’ll host Julie Andrews: The Gift of Music. Though Andrews can no longer sing due to some weird vocal surgery she probably really regrets, she will introduce some fine singers — Stephen R. Buntrock, Christiane Noll, Anne Runolfsson, Kevin Odekirk and Jubilant Sykes (great name) — who will perform classic Rodgers and Hammerstein songs, many of which Andrews originally recorded. (This may actually be painful to watch.) The show will also feature a musical adaptation of Simeon’s Gift, the children’s book Andrews wrote with daughter Emma Walton Hamilton.
July 18-19, 8:30 p.m., 2008
