The Sound Of Music Live

Is anyone else looking forward to this as much as I am?
 I am really quite excited about it!
After watching the NBC television program "The Making Of 'The Sound Of Music Live!" on the night before Thanksgiving, and then seeing the pair who will portray Liesl and Rolf  perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade yesterday morning, I can hardly wait. I have been a Carrie Underwood fan since her very first song on American Idol, and I adore Tony winners Audra McDonald and Christian Borle, as well.
I have known - and loved - this Rodgers and Hammerstein musical for my entire life. From the Broadway soundtrack album with Mary Martin that Mother had  (a copy of which I also own myself, of course), that we listened to when we were growing up, to the fabulous film and soundtrack with the iconic and unsurpassed Julie Andrews, I have never tired of the music, and have seen every possible local production I could over the last 30 years.
I was absolutely fascinated and enthralled by the "making of.." show the other night, watching as they selected the cast of Von Trapp children, constructed the sets, rehearsed, etc. - and I can hardly wait to see the live production on December 5th! That behind the scenes peek definitely has whetted my appetite, just as I am certain they intended. Hey, NBC - it worked on me!
How about you?

Yes! I'll be watching. I'm surrounded by people who insist on calling it a remake, and I keep telling them, "No, it's live... that's a different thing!" Looking forward to it.

I'm sort of nervous that I won't like it but I love the new star trek cast so hopefully all will be well. ♥
