It was on NBC in America on Thursday 5th December at 8pm. Unfortunately, as of yet there is still no proposal for an airing in the UK or other countries, but I’m sure it will be available shortly after it’s initial showing. It is set for DVD release in America later in December 2013.

I watched the Sound of Music Live, and didn’t really enjoy it. I realized, of course, that it would be nowhere as good as the original, but it still disappointed
Carrie as Maria Not rated yet
I liked Carrie as Maria. I felt in the beginning Maria & the children had great chemistry. Then after Max, Baroness & The Capt, it became a trio broadway
A fresh new take, done wonderfully Not rated yet
I loved the original with julie andrews, but the carie underwood version was very enjoyable. Why did Rolfe not call the luetenant in the new version.

I believe this was an amazing show. Please ignore the critical people. As someone that did a lot of musicals in school, I very much appreciated it. People
