Carrie Underwood has traded in her usual glamorous stage costumes for braids and a dirndl. Fans are getting their first look at Carrie as Maria Von Trapp with the release of the first promotional poster for NBC’s live production of The Sound of Music, reports BroadwayWorld.com.
Carrie stars as the beloved nanny opposite Stephen Moyer, who will take on the role of Captain Von Trapp. The production will also star Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess, Laura Benanti as Elsa and Christian Borle as Max. Last week, a casting call went out to find actors to portray the children of the Von Trapp clan.
Directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller and Rob Ashford and produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, The Sound of Music will air live on NBC on December 5 at 8/7c.
