The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music

December 5, 2013

I can't contain my excitement! Not sure how many of you love musicals but I am hooked.  Now how many of you have seen The Sound of Music? Do you love it? I am not ashamed to admit that I love this classical. 

When I first heard that a new The Sound of Music was being made starring Carrie Underwood, I have to admit I didn't really care for the idea. Not because I have anything against Carrie Underwood but I just thought why redo something that is already a classic. After reading on this further and seeing all the publicity on this new version, I soon learned that this is going to be epic!

Note this special broadcast is not a remake of the movie that Julie Andrews made so famous.  This special is based on the Broadway hit in 1959 that won a Tony Award for Best Musical.  

Carrie Underwood will be playing Maria and "True Blood's" Stephen Moyer will be playing Captain Von Trapp during the LIVE 3-hour broadcast of the musical.  The singing and acting will be LIVE! This is a mayor event for television. 

I hope that you tune in and at least give it a try and check out the performances.  If you want to read and see more behind the scenes footage, click here.

Do you have any favorite songs from this musical?
