Social media lit up with commentary on the musical remake
NBC certainly went out on a limb with its three-hour production of “Sound of Music,” which aired live on Thursday night and sparked a lot of commentary on Twitter.
The reported $9 million production was a big part of the network’s holiday programming roll out. Set to air at least one more time before Christmas, NBC reportedly hopes it can air annually as a holiday mainstay.
What did those in the entertainment industry have to say about the gutsy production?
