WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN'S GOING TO HAPPEN. JUST DON'T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU: NBC's upcoming live production of The Sound of Music, starring Carrie Underwood, has added a few familiar names: Laura Benanti (Baroness Elsa Schrader), Christian Borle (Uncle Max!), and Audra MacDonald (Mother Abbess). Stephen Moyer was previously announced as The Captain, but since I don't watch True Blood I have no idea who he is.

    With Anne Hathaway as Liesl and NPH as Rolph.*

    Well, I'm already looking forward to Climb Ev'ry Mountain, at least.

  3. Does the Baroness even have any songs? If not, Laura Benanti is a bit wasted there, although it's good casting.

    I don't think I would have watched, but with Christian Borle, I'm in.

    The Baroness and Max have two songs together in the stage version - How Can Love Survive, and No Way to Stop It. I like the songs and will happily listen to the two of them sing, and to Audra, but I may have to put it on mute for all of Maria's songs (especially after Underwood's Emmy performance).
