    Carrie Underwood cast as Maria Von Trapp in NBC's 'The Sound of Music'

    Sharing my article about the amazing news



    Country superstar Carrie Underwood has been cast in the iconic role of Maria Von Trapp in NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music, a true story about a nun who falls in love with a widower Captain von Trapp, after being asked to care for his seven children. The role, originated by Mary Martin (on Broadway in 1959) and later by Julie Andrews (in the film adaptation in 1965), will have Underwood further demonstrating her crossover appeal. The production will be a three-hour live event, set for a 2013 holiday release, according to TVbytheNumbers.


    The news broke early this afternoon, November 30, by NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. He spoke quite highly of the Country singer in a new statement:

    “Speaking for everyone at NBC, we couldn't be happier to have the gifted Carrie Underwood take up the mantle of the great Maria von Trapp. She was an iconic woman who will now be played by an iconic artist.”


    The once-in-a-lifetime event will be co-produced by the same producers of NBC's hit TV musical Smash, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
