I soo enjoyed watching and listening to this revival of the great musical, the Sound of Music. And may I say this, whomever was behind for selecting Carrie Underwood for the role of Maria – it was shear genius. Carrie captured everything that Marie was supposed to be. As the reviewer above said, Carrie brought the innocence and awkwardness that Marie had to have to make the role real. Not only that but Carrie’s voice was extraordinary for a live performance. Carrie’s inner and outer beauty shined brightly for three hours and the fact that it was live made her presence even more enrapturing. I have since watched the performance on the DVD and without all the commercials it was totally awesome. Kudo’s to all responsible for what will surely become an annual tradition. Carrie and company have brought this great musical to a whole new generation. As the gracious Julie Andrews said – it was wonderful and Carrie did beautiful job. Congratulations to everyone.

I watched the show but really shouldn’t have, because being a huge Julie Andrews fan I kept comparing the two and that was unfair and I know it. I have always loved Carrie Underwood”s music but I do feel this was not a good role for her and I am not saying that meanly. There just was no magic, no spark and zero chemistry between her costar and her. I didn’t like Steven Moyer’s performance as the captain either…it was too forced. No Christopher Plummer that’s for sure. Julie and Chris brought
an undeniable chemistry and magic to the show that just wasn’t there in this one. but give both of them credit for trying

Um, no. It was very awkward watching this, the acting was pretty bad, but it wasn’t just that. All humor from the original was gone, and some of Carrie underwood’s interactions with the children was sometimes awkward. For example, when she touches Leisels shoulder in the scene before the incorrectly placed Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti. Just awkward on all accounts.
