The Sound of Music
February 9, 2016
From the stage to the silver screen, The Sound of Music is a story that has been seen by millions the world over. The Balancing Act correspondent, Amber Milt, met with the creative team to find out how they recreated a classic for a whole new national audience.
“We plan to look more closely at this remarkable work,” says three-time Tony Award-winning director, Jack O’Brien. “To tear off the varnish of the past and reveal one of the great, fresh glories of musical theater.”
One of the greatest challenges was modernizing the role of Maria – a character that for many will always be associated with Julie Andrews – to ensure she is relevant and relatable to today’s woman.
“Maria’s journey in the story is really finding her place in the world,” Kerstin Anderson, who plays the part, observed. “I think that’s really something that everyone can relate to.”
