a revival of the stage musical-don't compare it with the movie
14 May 2016 | by wishbone19See all my reviews

As a revival of the stage musical, it is not so bad. I like this Maria, young and spirited. Yes, a little tense, as mentioned in the other review, but still in a cute way.

Julian Overden as the captain is a surprise for me. He sings so much better than the captain in the movie. But of course his acting is no match to Christopher Plummer who is a more convincing decorated sea captain of authority. Julian still looks like Charles Blake in Downton Abbey.

What amuses me so much than the rest is one song not included in the movie, How does love survive. The tune is catchy, the lyrics is hilarious, but not in accordance with the rest of songs. No wonder they took it out in the movie.
