Carrie Underwood

Review: 'The Sound of Music' sounds great at Broward Center

Review: 'The Sound of Music' sounds great at Broward Center

Is it worth it? Should you catch this touring production of “The Sound of Music” playing Fort Lauderdale’s Broward Center for the Performing Arts through Oct. 22?

After all, the 1965 movie version starring a splendiferous Julie Andrews remains must-watch TV viewing every year. A road tour commemorating the 50th anniversary of the film rolled through Miami in 2015. The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton mounted a fine production in 2013, the same year country pop singer Carrie Underwood took a whack at the lead role in an NBC live broadcast.

So is it really worth seeing yet another incarnation of this musical, even with its solid-gold score?
