“..yet if it wasn't a completely successful experiment, it was still a worthy one. Surely at least a few viewers enjoyed spotting the differences between the film and the Broadway original, and appreciated the attempt, as the song says, to do something good..”
by Robert Bianco [USA Today]
“..it wasn't a singalong or a sacrilege or a slavish, shameless remake. It was a live performance of a legendary musical that felt muted and a little sad..”
by Alessandra Stanley [NY Times]
“..in terms of feeling like this production genuinely delivered, that's one mountain "The Sound of Music Live!" just couldn't climb..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
“..Carrie Underwood ably belts out the hits - but her acting leaves a hole where this live production's heart should've been..”
by Marc Bernardin [Hollywood Reporter]
