The Sound of Music Revisited
July 12, 2013
Carrie Underwood will star in a reproduction of the classic movie, The Sound of Music, in December 2013 on NBC. It was written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. I love the original, but I am intrigued to know what the producers of this Sound of Music and Smashed are doing with the musical.
Carrie Underwood will play Maria Von Trapp. Julie Andrews played the same role in the movie version. There will be comparisons; I just hope the comparisons are favorable. You have two established singers, who are also good actresses.
I am partial to the original movie with Julie Andrews. Her character made the movie for me, especially her singing. I love the opening sequence where she is in the hills singing “The Sound of Music.” Some of my other favorite songs from this movie are “My Favorite Things”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen”, “Do-Re-Mi” and “Edelweiss.”
If you are interested in this musical or other musicals, explore MCPL's catalog, and as for another favorite song, “So Long, Farewell.”
