Tony Award winners Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti and Christian Borle are joining Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer in NBC’s live production of The Sound Of Music, a three-hour broadcast set for December 5. McDonald, a five-time Tony winner, will play Mother Abbess; Benanti, who won a Tony for Gypsy, will play Elsa Schrader; and Borle, who starred on NBC’s now-cancelled Smash and won a Tony for Peter And The Starcatcher, is returning to the network to play Max Dettweiler. The three-hour production will be based on the original 1959 Broadway production that starred Mary Martin as Maria and Theodore Bikel as Captain Von Trapp. The Universal TV-produced special is exec produced by Oscar producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan.
