Get Von Trapped
The hills are alive with “The Sound of Music” during NBC’s live remake of the famed Rodgers and Hammerstein musical featuring country singer Carrie Underwood as Maria and actor Stephen Moyer as Captain Von Trapp.
Check TV listings or your on-screen guide for time.
Incidentally, the Colorado hills will be alive with the sound of judgment because features writers Melinda Mawdsley and Rachel Sauer will be live tweeting their thoughts about the show during the broadcast.
They have been talking for months about NBC’s decision to air this show.
