Love this recording. Carrie Underwood is not your conventional Maria but great, non the less. And the flawless performances by the Broadway vets Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti and Christian Borle make it a must for any musical theatre lovers collection.

Although I still love the film version of this classic musical with the legendary Julie Andrews in the role of Maria, I equally love the original cast Recording with again the legendary Mary Martin who created the role of Maria on Broadway in 1959. This recording I feel recaptures the stage play for a television audience. What for me this recording does is to realize even more what a mistake it was by Robert Wise the film version's director to cut the songs that Max Elsa and Max Elsa and The Captain sing in the stage version: 'How can Love Survive' and 'No Way To Stop It! fine songs which show Hammerstein in a rare sardonic mood and give, again for me, more meaning to the story. Also I prefer 'My Favorite Things' sung by Maria and The Mother Abbess,
rather than as in the film version to the children. In the stage version Maria sings to the children 'The Lonely Goatherd' here during the Thunderstorm which for me gives far more meaning to the song and includes Hammerstein's very clever lyrics. The film uses the marionettes puppet show for this song which Rodgers & Hammerstein would not I feel had written that type of song for that situation. Again that is how I feel.

The cutting of the song 'An Ordinary Couple' and the substitution of 'Something Good' that Richard Rodgers wrote for the film version is justifiable however as Rodgers & Hammerstein themselves were never happy with that song, and wanted to write another, even their greatest fan and star Mary Martin dis-liked that song, it is reported as her saying I liked the words to 'An Ordinary Couple' but I never did like the music! Unfortunately Hammerstein's terminal illness prevented them from writing a new song. He died 9 months after the stage play opened on Broadway.
