How 'The Sound Of Music Live!' Came To Life

How 'The Sound Of Music Live!' Came To Life

“And the cast that you, not me, refered to as "yokels" should be set for Broadway, right?

You know...cause they said how terrific they were.

It's called giving a well deserved complement. That's all. Nothing more.”

“Well, that just proves it. They "said" so.

I trust the entire cast will be finding their way to Broadway shortly.”

“I am 49 years old, I was in theatre in years in my hometown and then in Seattle. I worked with a lot of talented people. Many of the people I worked with have passed on or still work in the business. Robert Fitch originated the role of Rooster Hannigan in Annie on Broadway...I did Oklahoma and Annie with him. Gretchen Wyler did Hello Dolly with us. She originated the role of Silk Stockings on Broadway. Look them up. Then eff off. They don't have to find their way to Broadway, they created it.”

“From your comment, I understand you are a fan of the movie. However, it does not change the fact that you are unfamiliar with the original Broadway production...which is the basis of the NBC production. If you were, you would not have used the word "wrong".”

Dembabe40 on Dec 18, 2013 at 16:27:44

“Yeah, "wrong" as in "wrong according to the movie". I'm not unfamiliar with the original Broadway production, i just prefer the movie.

Way to parse, though. Extra credit.”

“"song in the wrong place"

I based my comment on your comment. Had you done some research, you would have known the song was not "in the wrong place".”

“"song in the "wrong" place.....I'm a fan of the movie."

Read the whole sentence....including the quotation marks around WRONG. Cherrypicker.”

“Perhaps you could have done some quick research. It's actually easy to find that the NBC production was based on the original Broadway production.”

Dembabe40 on Dec 6, 2013 at 14:37:35

“I didn't say I didn't know what it was based on....GEEZ, people! I knew what it was based on. I SAID I HAVE ONLY SEEN THE MOVIE. I don't care what it was based on, I've seen the movie, and that was the basis for my comparison.”

“You really expect us to believe that a network production that was filled with Broadway veterans...Tony nominated/winners was better than a community theater production?

Please.”

“What you don't know is that our theatre workshop performance was directed by a tony veteran and leading actors....but all the kids were local yokels. I have performed with Gretchen Wyler, Robert Fitch, Barry Williams etc, etc. I have worked with the best, baby. And they thought we were just as good if not better than those they worked with in New York and LA. So there.”

“" I fail to see the point of such a remake"

Funny, Julie Andrews disagrees with you.

Furthermore, the NBC production was based upon the original Broadway production.”

“How were they "outtakes"? Outtakes implies mistakes.

It seemed to me the point was to show what it looked like during rehearsal, then the production.”

“No they don't.

You clearly know nothing about him and our state.

Loud mouth politicians go over big in NJ, I am sorry to say.

That's just for starters. He lied to get the Latino vote on the subject of in-state tuition rates for immigrants. He is already backtracking on that one.

Do some research about him and our state.”

“Misspelling aside, she is sadly true, or at least was in my first year at a California State school in 1992. I was pretty amazed that people actually had to take remedial english and math, which means really the most basic principles.
This is not to say that the people in attendance were not smart in other ways (like one doctor I know who can't figure out how to balance a checkbook), but one would at least estimate that at University level, the most basic elements of a third grade class would have already been satisfied.

Unfortunately, the outlook on this, assuming it's still true, should not be one of disgrace. It should be a driving force to find ways to make sure our children have minimal life skills, and that includes a passing understanding of our spoken language (majority language, including government signage), as well as the language that describes our very existence (math, with science).”
