Clergy commentators snarked it up on the Twitter with hashtag “SnarkofMusic.”
PeaceBang wondered, “Will the big, fat Heidi braid come back?”
Oh heavens. That empire waist is no girl’s friend:
An ordinary housedress in an unflattering color, but at least they didn’t sex her up!! Remember when they did that to Marian the Librarian for the televised version with Kristen Chenoweth? Girlfraynd was SPRAYED into those bodices!!
I enjoyed the rehearsal footage:
Audra McDonald TOTALLY represented for the religious leaders. She was the best thing about the broadcast. And this woman can do diva. I adore her:
I missed these guys a lot, especially Christopher Plummer. I know he admitted to being drunk when they filmed the Salzburg Music Festival scene, that he thought “Edelweiss” was trite and wanted another song to be written in its place, that his voice AND guitar playing were later dubbed, that he loathed being in the movie, that he said that working with Julie Andrews was like being hit over the head with a valentine every day (but they became great life-long friends) and that he referred to the film as “The Sound of Mucus,” but darn it, it all works anyway!
I REALLY missed her, her 16 bows, and her side buns:
Saint Judy, pray for us now and in the hour of our live broadcasts (and that is how you do a soft, neutral make-up, beautifuls!).
Did you notice that Rolf never graduated beyond shorts and knee socks even when he became a full-fledged member of the Nazi guard? His knee caps were SO undignified!
What was your take-away, pigeons? Will we be seeing a come-back for dirndls and leiderhosen?
