    What a nightmare THAT was!!!! I went into it with few hopes, and frankly had planned to just tally the misfires, but the entire thing was such a train wreak that I simply sat for 3 hours in complete disbelief. Having come from, Los Angeles with a few years in New York School, this was not even of the quality of my school drama productions.

    blocking and stage direction were obviously pared down, perhaps in part to reduce the opportunities for camera catastrophes, but I think also in part to accommodate Underwood’s inexperience. Bottom line, I’d have rather seen a redeux with Julie Andrews, even at her mature age and given the tragedy of her botched throat surgery! At least her acting chops are still intact.

    And if you’ll forgive me; while no one is more open to promoting a diverse set of performers than I am, casting a black woman as Mother Superior in pre WWII Nazi Europe was the biggest fish story ever! No matter how badly the production needed an A list voice to beef up the ineptitude of the of majority of the cast (hello Stilted Captain and his little Wooden Children; that means YOU!), that was just too far off the scale of probable for me!

    Given the amount of money this production and it’s promotion must have cost, the result is inexcusable! It is no surprise to me that Wal-Mart was the major sponsor, as only their level of regular shopper would find this travesty an entertaining experience.

    This was a live production without a single mistake (and children) so I’m not sure WHAT you were watching. Not sure where your anger is coming from. Could be you have a problem with black people or feel that you’re above anyone that shops at Walmart. All having come from L.A. with a few years in New York School has done for you has made you very bitter. My guess is you’re a frustrated, unemployed actor. Lighten up. You’ll find work. Try to be positive. We’re pulling for you.
