The artists involved in the NBC broadcast of The Sound of Music Live!, including Carrie Underwood, Stephen Moyer, Christian Borle and Laura Benanti, share some of their "Favorite Things" from the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic.
On Dec. 5 at 8 PM, NBC will broadcast a special live presentation of Rodgers and Hammerstein's 1959 Broadway musical, starring six-time Grammy winner Underwood as Maria and “True Blood” star Moyer as Capt. Georg von Trapp, with Tony Award winners Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess, Benanti as Elsa Schrader and Borle as Max Dettweiler.
Playbill.com asked several members of the cast and creative team to share a special moment that is their particular favorite from the beloved musical.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
