Damian Kelly-Bateman: Von Trapp in Sound of Music
Rodgers and Hammerstein's audience favorite The Sound of Music premiered on Broadway in 1959 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre with Theodore Bikel as Captain Von Trapp and Mary Martin as Maria. The celebrated 1965 film adaptation starred Christopher Plummer and Julie Andrews. In December, NBC will air a live broadcast of the musical featuring Carrie Underwood as Maria and Stephen Moyer as Von Trapp.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
