'THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE!' STARS ARE GETTING NERVOUS
The stars of NBC's upcoming live production of The Sound of Music are starting to get a little nervous now that the December 5th premiere date is rapidly approaching. Former Smash actor Christian Borle told The Associated Press, "Yeah, I get sweaty palms thinking about it. But it will be a kick! It will be an adrenaline rush!" Stephen Moyer, who will play Captain von Trapp, added, "I'm not worried about the actual production. Yes, it will be nerve-racking. But the most important thing was that I said, 'Yes, I'll do it.'" Carrie Underwood echoed similar sentiments saying, "I'm really hoping that on Dec. 5 we will have done it so much that it'll feel like just another rehearsal. Obviously, there'll be a heightened awareness of what's happening, but I'm hoping that it feels like 'We've got this!' one last time."
