    Hard to read this with dry eyes, especially if the “Sound of Music” evokes memories of one’s own childhood.

    And star of Sondheim’s “Evening Primrose,” with co-star Anthony Perkins:

      Also: interesting to learn that Charmian’s absentee father (who apparently left the family when his wife refused to allow his mistress to move in) was a conductor named Brian Farnon. And Charmian’s uncle was the better-known conductor Robert Farnon:

      Per Telegraph: “Charmian was not to be reunited with her father until 1966, when she attended an after-premiere party of a Hollywood film at which he was the conductor of the orchestra.”
