|Carrie Underwood and the children
I wanted to love it. I did. Sound of Music is one of my all time favorite musicals. I've been to a lot of plays in my life, most of which were musicals, this was one of the worst I've seen. And that includes local musical theater not just the Broadway touring companies. Annie, which we saw last year in NH had better acting.

The children were pretty good, and honestly probably out shined the adults.
|Carrie Underwood &
Bad casting. Especially of Maria. I love Carrie Underwood but she is not an actress. This story needs an actress who can portray a depth of feeling. Carrie Underwood didn't do that.
Now having said all that: Kudos to everyone for attempting live television. I didn't notice a lot of technical errors, nor flubbed lines and such.
