A different kind of remake
14 December 2013 | by rheijoelmdSee all my reviews

As far as I know this is a live television adaptation of the original stage musical and NOT the film version. I know a lot would not agree with how the show was made but who's to blame? The magnificent voices of the cast brings back memories on how the Von Trapp family became a sensation. Carrie may not have had the best of acting abilities but when she starts to sing the chemistry that defines her as Maria starts to appear. I don't think it would be fair to compare her with Julie Andrews but I do believe that she did better than any other Broadway actresses who played Maria on-stage.

I can only say to myself that they did cast the right people for a television show. To play on-stage would be a different thing.

Kudos to Carrie Underwood.
