Is anyone else looking forward to this as much as I am?
I am really quite excited about it!
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?
