Review: NBC's Live The Sound of Music

Sound of Music Live

When The Sound of Music sang, it soared. And scored, attracting an astounding 18.5 million viewers Thursday during NBC's ambitious three-hour live broadcast of the enduring Rodgers & Hammerstein classic. Climb every ratings mountain, indeed.

Rest assured, you haven't been smoking edelweiss. This reimagining of the beloved classic about a plucky nun-turned-governess, her irresistible charges and their widower ­father in Nazi-occupied Austria is actually happening on network television... read more
