(AP) — The tube was live, with “The Sound of Music” last night. Carrie Underwood starred in NBC’s live production of the musical.

Underwood played Maria, while Stephen Moyer from “True Blood” was Captain Von Trapp. It came off without a hitch. But some might find fault with Underwood’s acting ability.

The TV production was a staging of the Broadway version, not a video remake of the movie. And the TV version was produced not far from Broadway. The production was done at the massive Grumman Studios on New York’s Long Island.
