VIDEO: Watch THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE! with The Shows Must Go On- Airs Today!
THE SHOWS MUST GO ON! YouTube Channel will continue today with THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE!, a television special originally broadcast by NBC in 2013, featuring seven-time Grammy Award-winner Carrie Underwood and True Blood star Stephen Moyer.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE! will be available to live stream from Friday, June 26 (2pm ET / 11am PT) for a limited 48-hour period below!
From the producers of the Academy Award-winning Chicago and BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Hairspray, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron of Storyline Entertainment, the special was an adaptation of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's 1959 Broadway musical The Sound of Music. Directed by Tony Award-winning theatre director Rob Ashford and Prime Time Emmy-nominee Beth McCarthy-Miller, the production was originally a ratings success for NBC, delivering the network's most-watched Thursday with non-sports programming since the Frasier finale in 2004 and ultimately reaching more than 42 million viewers. It remains the most-watched live musical television event since its broadcast revived the format in 2013.
Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer star as Maria and Captain von Trapp in this beloved story of the young novice who falls in love with Captain von Trapp and his seven children, set against the backdrop of Nazi-occupied Austria. The jewel in the Rodgers & Hammerstein crown, THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE! contains some of the most famous songs ever written for the stage, including "The Sound of Music," "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" and "Edelweiss." This version of The Sound of Music has been faithfully adapted from the original stage musical to retell the story for a whole new generation.
