The Next Live TV Stage Show to Follow “The Sound of Music”
The hills were definitely alive last December when Carrie Underwood belted out familiar tunes from the classic “Sound of Music” live on national television. Everyone thought live theater on TV was a dead genre, too risky and not a huge ratings grabber. “The Sound of Music” changed all that and now NBC is talking about the next live production set for next Fall.
The next NBC live musical will be the stage version of “Peter Pan” on December 4, 2014. The same production team will be behind this production.
“Peter Pan” has a rich history on the peacock network. The live broadcast in 1955, 1956 and 1960 drew huge audiences.
No cast members have been announced but I’m sure with the right cast member, it will do very well.
What do you think? Which country music star(s) would you like to see in the live stage version of “Peter Pan?”
