Check your TV schedule for Thursday 5th December, so that you don't miss NBC's screening of 'The Sound of Music Live'. It stars country singer Carrie Underwood as Maria, "True Blood" favorite Stephen Moyer as Captain Von Trapp, and Tony Award-winning actress Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess. It is produced by Neil Meron and Craig Zadan.
The show is an adaptation of the original Broadway Show, not the 1965 movie, and lasts for three hours.
Julie Andrews, who played Maria in the movie, has given the show her blessing, saying "I think she's (Carrie Underwood) great, it's going to be the original show, I believe, and I think after 40 or 50 years, it's probably time somebody else had a crack at it."
An exciting outdoor production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music is taking place this summer in London, England. It is happening at the charming Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park from July 25th until September 7th 2013.
