Carrie Underwood's Sound Of Music LIVE Performance Put On Twitter Blast By The Original Von Trapp Children!
Not only did the original von Trapp family not agree with casting Carrie Underwood as Maria von Trapp, but it seems that the some of the original cast from the Julie Andrews film didn't like her either!!
And she wasn't alone!
Kym was joined by her former cast-mates Charmian Carr, who played Liesl von Trapp, and Angela Cartwright, who played Brigitta von Trapp, and it seems they had some strong opinions about the show!
Ch-ch-check out what they tweeted…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Carrie Underwood Wasn't Sound Of Music's 1st Pick?! The Original Von Trapps Wanted A DIFFERENT Actress!
Uh oh! Maybe they SHOULD have given them what they wanted!
However, it's coming to light that the original von Trapp family was NOT on board with Carrie's casting as Maria! In fact they wanted someone COMPLETELY different to play the role!
According to Myles von Trapp Derbyshire, who is the great grandson of the OG Maria von Trapp, the family wanted none other than Miz Anne Hathaway to play the role!
The 28 year-old New-Yorker said:
The Sound Of Music LIVE was Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Dough for NBC's ratings bank!
The three-hour stage performance of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical delivered a whopping 18.5 million viewers—which was NBC's highest rated Thursday night non-sporting event ever!
Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer's portrayal of Fraulein Maria and Captain Von Trapp captured the classic story and provided enjoyment for people that don't usually experience live theater on the reg!
We have a feeling this whole holiday theatrical event will be a reoccurring theme in years to come!
