NBC’s ‘Sound of Music Live’: Hollywood’s Best Reactions

NBC’s ‘Sound of Music Live’: Hollywood’s Best ReactionsNBC’s ‘Sound of Music Live’: Hollywood’s Best Reactions

NBC certainly went out on a limb with its three-hour production of “Sound of Music,” which aired live on Thursday night and sparked a lot of commentary on Twitter.

Led by Grammy winner Carrie Underwood and “True Blood” star Stephen Moyer, it also starred Tony Award winners Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti and Christian Borle.

The reported $9 million production was a big part of the network’s holiday programming roll out. Set to air at least one more time before Christmas, NBC reportedly hopes it can air annually as a holiday mainstay.

“Smash” producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan headed up the production, which was based on the original 1959 Broadway production of “The Sound of Music,” starring Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel.

But of course, most viewers are better acquainted with the 1965 film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. So, NBC’s take had big shoes to fill.

What did those in the entertainment industry have to say about the gutsy production?
