The next best thing to seeing a Broadway show live onstage happens tonight on NBC at 8pm Eastern Standard time when the network broadcasts a live TV performance of the beloved Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music.
Carrie Underwood stars in the role of Maria, the young governess of a group of rowdy children. Stephen Moyer (True Blood) plays the children’s father, Captain von Trapp. The cast also features experienced Broadway performers such as Audra McDonald, Christian Borle, and Laura Benanti.
Fans of the famed film adaptation of The Sound of Music will discover that this original Broadway stage version includes a few songs that were not included in the movie. But they will also be happy to hear the musical’s many classics, such as “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” and “Edelweiss”.
