Lyric Opera of Chicago’s new production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel runs April 10 to May 3 at the Civic Opera House (opening night April 11). The production is directed and choreographed by Tony, Emmy, and Olivier Award winner Rob Ashford and stars Steven Pasquale as carousel barker Billy Bigelow and Laura Osnes as his true love, millworker Julie Jordan. We are looking forward to seeing our favorite Good Wife star in a new role! He has our hearts and I’m sure he’ll capture them again!
